 Hello my name is Eleanor. 

My dad was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s when he was 56 years old. I was 15 years old at the time and struggled to come to terms with it all. I have set up an Instagram page called early_onset_alzheimers_support for any families who are currently struggling to come to terms with it all and need some advice from some who has been through it all.

Hi Eleanor,  My name is Andrea.  I'm 55 years old and was diagnosed with EOA earlier this year.  I've found so many support groups for caregivers, but none for those of us with this disease.  MEMORY WARRIORS is a support group on Facebook for people with EOA to support each other.  It's a place to ask and answer questions, to help one another, to share experiences, frustrations, and feelings. This disease is a journey but we don't need to travel alone.
