Care Consultation
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias can be a prolonged illness requiring ongoing caregiver education and support. Talking about concerns can help family members and the person with disease meet the challenges of caregiving today, while planning for changes tomorrow. 

Care Consultation is a service to assist the person with disease and their families/care partner in planning for and dealing with all aspects of the illness experience. This program is available to families at all points in the disease process, from a new diagnosis to late stage. Components of care consultation include: assessment of needs, assistance with planning and problem solving, the development of a verbal or written action/care plan and provision of support. These services are provided by a licensed social worker.

Examples of services provided are:

  • One-on-one education about the disease process, treatment and research opportunities
  • Provide information and resources to assist with legal, financial and social security issues including Medicaid and Medicare
  • Information about community services to meet the changing needs of care partners and persons with dementia
  • Address safety issues
  • Identify and clarify roles and responsibilities of caregiving
  • Assist caregivers with development of positive caregiving strategies

Care Consultation is available via phone and/or email to all areas of the Greater Indiana Chapter. 

In office visits can be arranged in either the Indianapolis or Fort Wayne offices.
