FAMILIES: Family Access to Memory Impairment and Loss Information, Engagement and Supports

Federally-funded research program that provides counseling, support and access to resources for caregivers over several months

The Alzheimer's Association and the University of Virginia Memory and Aging Care Clinic are working together on a grant funded program titled FAMILIES. Through this program there will be individual and family counseling sessions provided at no cost. If you, or someone you know, is a caregiver of someone with dementia and is under a great deal of stress, this program is created to help put together plans to care for the care partner, as well as the individual with memory loss. You may refer yourself or call to find out more. We encourage you to reach out for resources and support. 

This is the first time this innovative program is being offered in Virginia.  It is available to residents of:

Charlottesville (city)
Chatham (city)
Albemarle County
Augusta County
Buckingham County
Greene County
Fluvanna County
Louisa County
Madison County
Nelson County
Orange County
Rockingham County

To determine if you are eligible for this program or to learn more, call or email:  (434) 982-4004 or par4c@virginia.edu
