Caring for a person with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia is a life-encompassing experience that spans generations. Everyone has a role: spouses, siblings, children of all ages and friends each play a part on the care team. It requires thought, strategy and, most importantly, a plan.
Care Consultations from the Alzheimer's Association are more than just a meeting with a dementia expert. Our team works with you to:
- Navigate difficult caregiving decisions and family issues
- Assess current needs and anticipate future care challenges
- Develop an effective care plan and problem solve barriers
- Offer supportive listening in a confidential, nonjudgmental environment
We don't teach or tell you what to do. We coach you and your family to find mutually acceptable solutions to improve the quality of life and care for the individual living with Alzheimer's. Plus, the service is free.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to offer this service for free, via telephone call or we can set up a video conference call.
If you are unfamiliar with using video tools, we are happy to work with you on that, too.
To setup a care consultation, please call our local staff at (716) 626-0600 during normal business hours or 24/7 at 1-800-272-3900.
