Family Caregiver Services

Caregivers

Guidance and support for family members caring for a loved one with memory loss

If you are caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s, dementia or another form of memory loss, you do not have to go through this alone. Our program for family caregivers can help with the challenges you are facing and share strategies for your own self-care.

Our program, funded by the New York State Department of Health, is designed to help family caregivers explore ways to find balance in their lives as they navigate their path as a family caregiver. Our services help caregivers manage the complex issues around understanding and responding to dementia, from financial to personal and interpersonal issues.

We have provided services for people with Alzheimer’s or other memory loss for over 30 years. We understand what you are experiencing and are here to offer support.
