Care Consultation provides support, solution-focused care planning and referral to community and chapter services for family members who are caring for a person with dementia. This service can be provided over the phone, via e-mail or in person meeting. It is aimed at those care givers who are overwhelmed by stress and exhaustion, have difficulty finding services, are confused about symptoms and care giving and/or face complicated family problems. The service is available to individuals or a family group. Care Consultation is available in all our chapter offices, located throughout Oklahoma.
Our professional staff is dedicated to helping people navigate through the difficult decisions and uncertainties people with Alzheimer’s and their families face at every stage of the disease. These include:

Diversity and Inclusive Statement
At the Alzheimer's Association, diversity is imperative and integral to our mission. It is vital to what we do, and is a promise we make to those we serve. Our team of dedicated professionals understands that valuing diversity and inclusiveness is critical to the success of our mission.
We seek to be inclusive of the millions of people currently affected by Alzheimer's disease, their caregivers and the communities in which they live.
The Alzheimer's Association views diversity broadly and includes considerations such as, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, gender, age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, regional, place or national origin, religion, language and persons with disabilities.
As the American population ages and becomes increasingly more diverse, the Alzheimer's Association will expand its mission activities to remain inclusive and meet the demand for culturally and linguistically sensitive information and increased awareness to persons living with the disease.
The Alzheimer's Association will continue to cultivate relationships within diverse communities, by sharing our time, talent, resources and exchanging ideas. As such, our diversity and inclusiveness charter will help us to fulfill our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer's Association Safe Return® is a nationwide identification, support and enrollment program that provides assistance when someone with Alzheimer's or a related dementia wanders and becomes lost. Assistance is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If an enrollee is missing, one phone call immediately activates a community support network to help reunite the lost person with his or her caregiver.
Local resources and referrals
We maintain updated information on home care, adult day care, care coordination, assisted living, skilled nursing facilities, eldercare lawyers and transportation available in the community. Our staff and trained professionals can help assess whether a specific care provider meets the needs of an individual with Alzheimer’s.
