Enhanced Caregiver Support

We have time limited grant funding to help people with dementia and their caregivers.

  • Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementia-related illness can increase your loved one’s risk of nutrition problems, which exacerbate symptoms of the disease, increase caregiver stress, and lead to more frequent hospitalizations. Call us to learn if FREE specialized nutrition counseling in your home can help your family manage these challenges. Click for details
