Providing Hope, Help & Guidance for Alzheimer’s

and  Dementia Families

                                             We can help….we have been there.

 ~Annual Appeal 2019 ~
For many of our clients, A Place to Start is their only source of socialization and support. With that being said, it is only through the generosity and kindness from people just like you that we are able to continue our mission of providing hope, help and guidance to families living with dementia.  We have been able to support families with Alzheimer’s and dementia since 2011!
We strive to offer caregivers and their loved ones a place to gather, a place to feel supported and give them a sense of belonging during a time that can be so challenging and even lonely at times. Family caregivers experience clinical symptoms of depression and feelings of isolation and loneliness. Support is what leads to less stress, less depression, and better health.We provide this and many other services at no cost to the family or caregiver.
We thank you for your kindness and your continued support!!!

A Place to Start is a non-profit organization started with a mission of hope, help and guidance for families living with Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

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.



“This is the power of gathering.

It inspires us–delightfully–to be more hopeful, more joyful, more thoughtful:

in a word, more ALIVE.”
