Our newsletter is filled with information on some of the wonderful programs and services we offer to caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer's disease, dementia or other memory impairment.  

This month we will be bringing you some great tips via our Monday Mojo and Wednesday Workshops! Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel so you don't miss a thing!  And remember to check-out our  Events Calendar and our Support Groups Calendar.
As always, our team is here to help ~ whenever you are ready to reach-out! 

We know how extremely beneficial support and education are for those caring for someone with Alzheimer's or another dementia, especially in these challenging and unpredictable times. We are working to create new ways to bring you programs that provide resources, information, and guidance. Below are details on some of the ways in which we have modified our programs:
  • We are offering support groups by phone, facilitated by our knowledgeable staff. These telephone support groups will continue our goal to provide caregivers with the emotional support and education they need to better understand and manage Alzheimer's and other dementias.
  • As always, our Caregiver Helpline  855-476-7600  is available 24/hrs per day.  Our highly skilled care counselors are available to provide support and resources during this very trying time. Additionally, our web chat  feature is open from 8:30am - 5pm.
  • We will be delivering valuable information and guidance through online classes and webinars.

With warmest regards,
