Memory Loss Referral Program

The Memory Loss Referral Program is specifically designed to assist medical professionals at the time of a diagnosis of memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Simply complete the HIPAA compliant referral form and fax it to Alzheimer’s Association Southeastern Virginia Chapter. A staff member will promptly contact the patient and their family to inform them of resources, education and support services that will help them understand and cope with the disease.

Why Refer?

The Memory Loss Referral Program:

  • Will help your patient and their family understand the impact of memory loss and how they can work together to manage its effects.
  • Is a timely and personal follow-up to a diagnosis.
  • Connects your patients and their caregivers to needed resources, education and support services.
  • Provides updates to the referring physician, if requested.
  • Download the brochure and referral form.

For more information, check out our Memory Loss Referral Program Brochure, contact us at or call the chapter at 757-459-2405.

Care Consultation

Care Consultation is an in-depth, personalized service for individuals and families who are facing many decisions and challenges associated with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. The goal is for each family to develop a better understanding of the disease, make a plan to secure needed care, and develop strategies for the best possible symptom management and communication. Care consultations are available by phone or in person. Please call the Alzheimer's Association 24/7 Helpline at 1-800-272-3900 to arrange a consultation.

Respite Care Grants

Respite care provides caregivers a temporary rest from caregiving, while the person with Alzheimer's continues to receive care in a safe environment. Using respite services can support and strengthen your ability to be a caregiver. The Southeastern Virginia Chapter provides respite care grants to families who have financial constraints that make respite care challenging. Grants are available in select areas depending upon funding and can be used for in-home or facility-based care.
