A program for family caregivers

Caregivers are people who provide support to a person with a physical, emotional or mental disability. A family caregiver refers to those who provide unpaid “informal” care to a family member or friend. We are a resource for all caregivers, particularly those caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.

Our mission and vision

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for family caregivers and those they care for with evidence-based services, support, education and research. We envision partnering with the community in creating a better-coordinated, more integrated network of services and evidence-based model of care that will support the physical, emotional, and social health of the families of persons with Alzheimer’s and other dementias and those they care for

We achieve this by focusing on:

  • Educational training for each stage of care, including new diagnosis for caregivers and patients, behavioral management, navigating family dynamics, advance planning, legal and financial preparation, transitioning to long-term care, and grief and loss support
  • Hands-on skills training workshops
  • Social engagement for caregivers and their loved ones including memory cafes and a community choir
  • Peer support training
  • Facilitated support groups lead by health care professionals
  • Research and program evaluation
  • Rural community outreach and education
