Caregiver Support

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.  Support includes:

  • Individual and group supportive counseling
  • Direct assistance to access entitlements, referrals for services such as home care and Meals on Wheels
  • Help with enrollment in Medicaid Managed Care Program, referral to social adult day programs
  • Seminars and workshops about dementia-related behavior such as decoding behavioral messages, identifying common triggers and learning strategies for the common challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Information and referrals to long-term care, financial planning, and advocacy
  • Temporary financial assistance for home care and/or attendance for a loved one in a social adult day program
  • Free legal assistance about living wills, healthcare proxy, and power-of-attorney
  • Techniques for self-care and relaxation including free exercise or yoga classes
