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.


Assistance with Care Planning: Dementia Care Specialists can help to address your current situation and plan for the future, including advance care plans and connections to legal and financial planning experts.

Connections to Support Groups and Other Programs: Dementia Care Specialists are knowledgeable about all of the opportunities and resources available in your community and can help you find information and make connections with the services and programs that best fit your needs.

Caregiver Support Groups:

Caregiver Support Groups provide a place to connect with other caregivers who truly understand what you are going through. A Caregiver Support Group offers a safe place for caregivers, family and friends of persons with dementia to meet and develop a mutual support system.
