Help with Alzheimer's

There may be a point in time where you need outside assistance for the person in your care. Resources for anything from in-home help to a residential care facility to emotional support groups are available.

Finding Alzheimer's Capable Care

As Alzheimer's disease progresses, you may need to consider in-home assistance or residential care facilities. There are several easy-to-use tools to help you figure out your needs and find care assistance.

Deciding Where to Live

Staying at Home: Most people prefer to stay at home for as long as possible. Staying at home often requires two elements: 1) finding care providers who will come to the home; and 2) adapting the home to reduce obstacles that hinder care giving and make the home unsafe for a person with Alzheimer's disease. In many cases, small changes to the home can make it possible to live at home longer.
