Providing care for a family member with dementia and/or Alzheimer's is never easy. Support groups, educational topics and respite are a huge factor in remaining a great caregiver. There are local Partnerships that work with the Alzheimer's Association which provide these types of support services. The local group to the Southcoast is the Southeastern Massachusetts Alzheimer's Partnership.
The Southeastern Massachusetts Alzheimer's Partnership is a coalition of concerned health and human service providers. Working closely with family caregivers and the Alzheimer's Association, we strive to educate and improve the quality of care provided to individuals with Alzheimer's Disease and related disorders in Southeastern Massachusetts.
A panel of professionals will offer caregivers information on the following topics:
► Adult Day Health
► Alzheimer’s Association Programs
► Assisted Living Settings
► Elder Law
► Geriatric Care Manager Programs
► Homecare Services
► Long-Term Care
► Monitoring Programs
► Reverse Mortgages
►State Agencies such as: -Bristol Elder Services -Coastline Elderly Services -Old Colony Elder Services
Light Refreshments Will Be Served. Panels serve all of Southeastern Massachusetts so plan to attend one near you!
