About Our Association
One of the most effective ways to ensure optimal care for those with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease is through caregiver education.
Bringing awareness to the disease and encouraging families to share their challenges and successes is essential.
Respite Care Grants
Respite care provides caregivers a temporary rest from caring for a loved one. It also allows caregivers time to take care of errands while having comfort and peace of mind, knowing their loved one is safe.
Every person’s needs are unique when it comes to dementia and Alzheimer’s care. We can help provide resources and referrals to many different services.
