Caregiver Support & Resources

Being a caregiver for someone with dementia can pose special challenges, and quite frankly can be overwhelming and stressful. Caring for a person with dementia often requires collaborative effort from a team of people. If you provide daily caregiving, participate in decision making, or simply care about the well-being of a loved one with the disease — we have resources to help. As a caregiver, you likely have many responsibilities. It is important to have a support network to take care of your own well-being.

Remember, you do not have to face these challenges alone. We are here to assist.

A memory screen is a wellness tool that helps identify possible changes in memory and cognition. It creates a baseline of where a person is at so future changes can be monitored. Memory Screening can be conducted at the ADRC, or we can visit your home.
Call (608) 240-7400 to schedule a memory screen.
