AGE of Central Texas Early Memory Loss Support (formally known as New Connections, click here for history of New Connections) is committed to enhancing the mental and physical health and the overall quality of life of people affected by Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. Our team of professionals and dedicated volunteers continually strive to provide a high-quality program designed to offer opportunities for cognitive stimulation and social engagement to the person living with early-stage dementia.
The vision of the AGE of Central Texas Early Memory Loss Support Program is to provide education, information, and support to people experiencing the symptoms of early-stage Alzheimer's disease or a related disorder, as well as their caregivers, in order that they may remain as independent as possible for as long as possible.
This pioneering program is evidence based, and due to demand has recently expanded to two locations, and a one-time $25 materials fee applies.
