Caregiver Cottage – Programs and Services for Alzheimer’s Caregivers
The Alzheimer’s Care Resource Center has developed a variety of programs and services, just for you! Some caregivers attend our Caregiver Mixer Support Groups, others utilize our geriatric care management services,and others just come to our Gathering Place to spend some quiet time, alone or with a member of our care team.
And for those caregivers that simply can not get away, our online caregiver community forum, the Caregivers Corner, gives them a place to connect, safely and privately.
