Helping Families Cope and Plan for the Future
Caring for a loved one with memory loss can be rewarding and uplifting. It can also be emotionally, physically and financially exhaustive. Either way, the caregiving process will be life-changing. The Alzheimer’s Association assists families in navigating these challenges and guiding caregivers to resources and support to meet needs and reduce burden. The Greater Missouri Chapter's free Dementia Care Planning Sessions (also called Care Consultations) will provide you with a comprehensive needs assessment and can help to develop an individualized action plan to address unmet needs and link caregivers to chapter services and community resources.
Dementia Care Planning Sessions are a free service designed to provide you and your family support while coping with the impact of dementia from pre-diagnosis to end-of-life.
Due to current concerns around Covid-19, Care Consultations are being offered only by phone and NOT in-person. This is to limit the exposure of the virus to any vulnerable individuals that we might serve.
If you would like to be placed on a waiting list an in-person meeting, please let us know. However, it could be many weeks before these meetings are available. For quicker assistance, please consider a phone consultation. Thank you.
We recommend scheduling a Dementia Care Planning Session at any time during the dementia journey. As the disease progresses, you may choose to schedule follow-up consultations to address new concerns.
