Care Consultations
Care Consultations assist individuals with dementia and their families to solve immediate problems and plan for the future. These meetings with our dementia experts include the preparation of needs assessments and action plans.

Family Consultations
Family consultation services bring caregivers and family members together in a safe, facilitated forum to identify and discuss issues of common concern and develop strategies to address them. This unique service, moderated by licensed practitioners, offers families and care teams the opportunity to articulate challenges and frustrations related to caregiving, while identifying key themes and appropriate next steps in a group setting.

Support Groups
We offer peer- and professionally-led support groups for caregivers and others living with Alzheimer's disease. All support groups are facilitated by trained individuals. We also offer specialized groups for individuals with early-stage Alzheimer's, LGBTQ caregivers, Spanish speakers and younger-onset caregivers. Find a support group near you.

Education Programs
Available in-person and online, our education programs feature information on topics including the signs of Alzheimer’s disease, diagnosis, communication, living with Alzheimer’s and caregiving techniques. Find an education program near you.
