Program funded: January 2015 through December 2016
The support services provided by the Alzheimer’s Association are in place to help individuals cope with Alzheimer’s and related diseases. Services include a 24/7 resource and referral telephone helpline (1-800-272-3900), support groups, care consultations and other services. Support groups, where discussions focus on coping with challenging behaviors and dealing with ongoing losses and grief, are at the center of this program. The program also includes care consultations where trained, knowledgeable care consultants help patients and families navigate the health care, safety, long-term care and legal and financial issues often facing family caregivers.
