The Alzheimer’s Association: Resources for Your Loved One

By Nikhil Mehta, 9:00 am on

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s can be challenging, which makes it important to know where to turn for help. If your loved one requires Palm Desert Alzheimer’s home care, the Alzheimer’s Association offers a number of resources for those with the disease and their family caregivers. 

24/7 Helpline

Those who have questions or concerns about Alzheimer’s or Palm Desert dementia home care can call the Alzheimer’s Association’s helpline at 1-800-272-3900. This toll-free phone number is available around-the-clock, so caregivers and loved ones are able to get help at any time of day or night. This helpline also offers referrals for local community programs and services, as well as consultations with qualified clinicians. 

Local Chapters

The Alzheimer’s Association has local chapters available in numerous cities throughout the U.S. Caregivers and their loved ones can visit or contact these offices for information regarding community programs and services set up to help those who care for people with Alzheimer’s. These local chapters allow people to have face-to-face interactions with those who can help them prepare for Alzheimer’s care and support.

Caregiver Center

For those who can’t out of the house and need online resources, the Alzheimer’s Association has a comprehensive Caregiver Center online guide. This guide contains valuable information for family caregivers to help them care for their loved ones during any stage of the disease. Additionally, this guide will teach caregivers how to accommodate their loved ones while simultaneously caring for their own wellbeing.

Community Resource Finder

Caregivers and loved ones can visit the Community Resource Finder on the alz.org website to look up information regarding local programs and services, including medical services, housing options, Alzheimer’s Association programs and community service opportunities.

Support Groups

Seniors with Alzheimer’s and their loved ones often benefit from emotional support from groups associated with the Alzheimer’s Association. These include local support groups and online ones, such as the Alzheimer’s Association’s ALZConnected community. Whether you and your loved one prefer in-person meetings or online chat rooms, these resources can help you both share and learn from others in similar situations.

Alzheimer’s resources are key in helping seniors and their loved ones overcome the challenges associated with the disease. Fortunately, Home Care Assistance of Palm Desert is one such resource that provides comprehensive Alzheimer’s and dementia care and promotes overall wellbeing. Our highly trained caregivers incorporate our own proprietary care method known as the Cognitive Therapeutics Method to stimulate mental cognition, delay the onset of dementia symptoms, and supplement your loved one’s Alzheimer’s home care.
