Support for Caregivers


Caring for a loved one with memory loss can be rewarding and uplifting. It can also be emotionally, physically and financially draining. The Alzheimer’s Association assists families in navigating through challenges and guiding caregivers to resources and support to reduce burden. St. Louis Chapter Care Consultants provide a comprehensive needs assessment and develop an individualized action plan to address unmet needs and link caregivers to chapter services and community resources. 

Caregiver Respite Fund


When funds are available, qualifying caregivers in the St. Louis Chapter service area can receive modest financial assistance to help with the cost of respite support (time off), products, equipment, safety services and legal guidance.
