Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Program
Caregivers need support too.
Caring for someone who has Alzheimer’s Disease can be stressful, as well as emotionally and physically challenging.
The Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Program is dedicated to aiding under-served Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) caregivers in Westbury, Freeport and Hempstead, NY.
We provide opportunities for AD caregivers to meet in fun, social settings. Through education and support groups, we provide caregivers with the support they need. We also offer educational materials with the latest information about AD.
Our trained staff will:
- Make home visits to discuss your situation and assess your needs. This assessment is confidential.
- Link you to resources and services to assist you and your loved one on this journey.
- Connect you with our support groups, education programs and an online chat group.
There is no fee for these services.
