Our program

We recognize the care for a person with a chronic illness or disability is not complete without addressing the needs of the caregiver.

Focusing on caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s or other dementias, Caring for the Caregiver is dedicated to improving the quality of life for family caregivers and those they care for with evidence-based services, support, education and research with value on the caregiver’s health, skills and resilience.

Thank you for supporting the Dementia Friendly San Antonio Town Hall

The Caring for the Caregiver program hosted a free Town Hall in October to discuss Dementia Friendly San Antonio and to work with the community to identify priorities to shape this initiative as we move forward. Over 250 community members showed up and shared their perspectives. We are so grateful to everyone who attended and invite everyone to contact us with any additional thoughts or comments about what Dementia Friendly San Antonio can do for this community.
