Regardless of whether you or a loved one has received a diagnosis for acute memory loss or Alzheimer’s, our goal is to ensure you that you are not alone in your journey. The first step after receiving a formal diagnosis from your doctor is developing a plan of action with the help of someone you trust.
For caregivers and family members, Sunrise communities offer monthly Caregiver Support Groups to aid you through the process of planning for your loved one’s future. For those recently diagnosed with some form of memory loss, a trusted family member or friend can help with asking your doctor and senior living providers all the right questions.

People with all different kinds of experience with Alzheimer's disease, from patients and their family members to doctors and researchers, have long been frustrated by the seeming dearth of options for treating or preventing its symptoms. Unlike illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease, which can often be controlled with lifestyle changes, Alzheimer's seemed to be determined more by the unavoidable influence of genetics and age than by anything that patients had a say in. However, new research has shown that some of the methods used to delay or alleviate the symptoms of those other diseases may also be of help to people with Alzheimer's.
