The Alzheimer’s Care Resource Center’s Geriatric Care Navigation Program™ was designed as a progressive, affordable and empowering approach to traditional geriatric care management to offer a professional, dementia specific family for caregivers to turn. Geriatric Care Navigation helps Alzheimer’s caregivers and families feel reassured that they are never alone in facing their loved ones care needs.
Alzheimer’s caregivers are often overwhelmed with making choices for their loved one. Coping with current care needs and trying to anticipate the future can create stress and very often, fear of the future. The good news is caregivers never need to fee
l alone and can feel hopeful for that even in complicated situations, solutions exist to make a positive difference for the Alzheimer’s caregiver and the care receiver.
