Dementia & Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support

COVID-19 update:

In an effort to provide continued support, we have moved our full complement of weekly support groups online via Zoom and are offering individual consultations by phone, FaceTime or Skype to help families deal with the day to day stressors and assist them in finding creative strategies for care. All services are provided free of charge and we welcome you to call or email with any questions.

Caring for someone who has Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia can be a difficult physical, emotional, and mental challenge.

The Dementia & Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support program provides information, education and support to caregivers managing the complex needs of those living with a dementia.

Though Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia, there are as many as 50 other forms of dementia, often creating confusion for caregivers. Regardless of the dementia diagnosis, this program will help caregivers better understand their role while providing support and guidance to manage the challenges that lie ahead.

Having a proactive care plan in place that changes as the disease progresses is essential for maintaining the highest quality of life for all involved. A skilled dementia specialist can anticipate the changing needs of the caregiver and the care recipient, provide guidance and support, and connect families to the vast number of community resources.
