Family Care Consultations
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

A family-centered program offering personalized guidance to families.

Issues and uncertainties relating to Alzheimer’s can be complicated and overwhelming to persons with the disease, their caregivers, and families. At times, family members may not agree on what the needs are or they may be uncertain of the best course to follow.

Care Consultations provide personalized service to address the unique family and individual needs that arise throughout the disease process. The program allows families to come together with professional staff, identify needs, and find solutions to move forward. The program can be beneficial when multiple family members are involved in the care planning and/or decision-making or even when there is just one caregiver who needs some extra support.

Participants can:

  • Learn more about the causes and treatments of memory loss.
  • Discuss options in decision-making and planning for the future.
  • Learn tips and techniques that can improve communication and reduce challenging situations/behaviors.
  • Identify ways to reduce stress on the primary caregiver and the family.
  • Understand and access resources available in the community.
  • Create a Plan of Action that addresses areas of concern and the needs identified through the process.
  • Receive follow-up contacts with a Care Consultant to receive ongoing support throughout the process of implementing the Action Plan.

The initial consultation and assessment can be done over the phone or in-person at one of the chapter offices located in Hudson, Canton or Canfield.

For more information or to speak with a care consultant, please call the Helpline at 1.800.272.3900 or email geoachl@alz.org.
