A new day-care scholarship program for seniors with early signs of dementia is available through two Alzheimer's disease support groups, it was announced this week.

Friends of Alzheimer's Caregivers and John Douglas French Center are sponsoring the scholarships, which enable qualified seniors to attend the Club at the French Center for a reduced rate.

The scholarships reduce the daily cost to $14, from $40, for seven hours at the facility or to $18, from $50, for as long as 10 hours.

Participants must be 60 and have a dementia illness that causes memory loss or confusion. Eligible seniors must live in Anaheim, Cypress, Garden Grove, Hawaiian Gardens, Huntington Beach, Lakewood, Los Alamitos, Long Beach, Seal Beach, Signal Hill, Stanton or Westminster.

The center is at 3951 Katella Ave. Information: (562) 493-1555.
