Family Care Consultation

  • Do you want to know more about Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia?
  • Do you need help planning for care and preparing for the future?
  • Are you wondering about available community services?
  • Would you like to meet with a health care professional to discuss your particular situation or caregiving issues?

Alzheimer's disease and other dementing illnesses can be prolonged, requiring ongoing education and support throughout the course of the disease process. Talking about concerns can help family members/caregivers meet the challenges of giving care today, while planning for changes tomorrow.

A Family Care Consultation, facilitated by a nurse or social worker, assists families in coping with all aspects of the caregiving experience by providing education, support and referral to services. This program is available to families at all phases in the disease process, from a new diagnosis into the later stages.

 Where: The Alzheimer's Association office or other community location
as needed
 When: Available by appointment only
 Cost: Free, but donations are welcomed
 Contact: Call the main Cincinnati office at 513.721.4284 to schedule

Alzheimer's In-Home Education & Support Program
for clients of the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio 
in the Elderly Services Program (Hamilton & Butler Counties) or the PASSPORT Program (Hamilton County)

  • Do you want to know more about Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia?
  • Do you need help coping with changes in family roles and the challenges of daily caregiving while planning for the future?
  • Do you need support and education for the difficult decisions you may face regarding safety concerns, such as wandering and driving?
  • Are you exhausted, lack concentration or have health concerns of your own?
  • Do you need support and education about caregiver stress?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions you may want to meet with a social worker from the Alzheimer's Association. Our trained staff can assist you and your family in coping with all aspects of Alzheimer’s or other dementias by providing disease information, caregiver education, support and referrals to Alzheimer's Association programs and other services in the community.

To arrange a meeting, ask your Care Manager at the Council on Aging
to make a referral for Alzheimer’s In-Home Education & Support.
A staff person from the Alzheimer's Association will call you to schedule
a meeting at your home or another community location.

Keep in mind that Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia can last many years, and most caregivers benefit from ongoing support and education throughout the course of the disease. Talking about concerns helps the primary caregiver and other family members meet the challenges of giving care today, while planning for changes tomorrow.

 Where: Meetings are held in the caregiver's home or at another community location convenient to the family.
 When: Available by appointment only.
 Cost: No charge to clients.
 Contact: Referrals must be made to the Alzheimer's Association by your care manager at the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio.
Please contact your care manager to request a referral.
