There are so many things to consider when a family is impacted by a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia, and getting answers can feel overwhelming. Caring for a person with Alzheimer's disease or other dementia is a life-encompassing experience that spans generations. Everyone has a role: spouses, siblings, children of all ages and friends each play a part on the care team. It requires thought, strategy and, most importantly, a plan.
Care consultations with the dementia experts at the Alzheimer’s Association® Western New York Chapter Office can provide those necessary plans as families navigate the changes and challenges.
Care Consultations from the Alzheimer’s Association are more than just a meeting with a dementia expert. Our team works with you to:
- Navigate difficult caregiving decisions and family issues
- Assess current needs and anticipate future care challenges
- Develop an effective care plan and problem solve barriers
- Offer supportive listening in a confidential, nonjudgmental environment
Care consultants don't teach or tell you what to do. They coach you and your family to find mutually acceptable solutions to improve the quality of life and care for the individual living with Alzheimer’s.
These private meetings are available at no cost and can be scheduled across all eight counties of the WNY region by calling the WNY Chapter Office at (716) 626- 0600 extension 313 during normal business hours.
