I wish I could tell you that finding the right support in your community is a button push away. You will have to research and make some phone calls to determine your best options. The best thing you can do is find other Alzheimer’s caregivers whose experience will make it easier for you to locate information.
The Alzheimer’s Association is the closest to quick help but their site can be a little confusing. I recommend calling their 24/7 hotline at 1.800.272.3900, and letting them guide you. Or, at the link below, you can input your zip code to locate your nearest chapter but you’ll still need to call.
Eldercare.gov has links to your local government resources. Ignore the topics in the right hand column or you will end up looking at national resources. Input your zip code and select search. This will show your local resources. A couple of phone calls here and you can be on you way to finding good help.
Contacting a Geriatric Care Manager is an option if you can pay for expert advice. These professionals will reduce your stress by saving you time while providing you with quality information and assistance.
