Connie and her daughters

We help you develop specific and individualized care plans for living with the diagnosis of dementia. And we offer mentorship, navigation, guidance, planning, support and understanding for coping with alzheimer’s disease.

A Place to Start is a way for our family to continue a passionate cause in honor of our dear mother, Connie, who passed away from Alzheimer’s disease in 2011. As a family who has journeyed down the uncertain path of dementia and Alzheimer’s, we hope to help and guide other families living with the disease.

We can help – we’ve been there.
