Family Living with Alzheimer’s
For Family Caregivers
ABC’s of Caregiving
Short workshops are offered monthly on a variety of topics for people caring for persons with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia. The ABC’s programs are free and offered across the state. Contact your local Alzheimer’s Resource of Alaska office or check our calendar of events to see what topics will be covered this month in your area.
Caregiver Support Groups
Caregiving is hard. A caregiver can find it rewarding and frustrating at the same time. It’s easy to imagine that nobody could know what you’re going through, but we do. You don’t have to do this alone. Click here to see a current list of our support group offerings across the state.
Savvy Caregiver Program
This is a free education program for people who are caring for a loved one with dementia. It is a six-week, two hour each week class that discusses the emotions and decision making you might be facing, gives a thorough overview of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and focuses on improving the practice of caregiving. Space is limited so registration is required for this class; contact your local office to find out about availability.
Do you have a question about caregiving? Don’t wait for a class. Call and set up a free consultation with one of our experts. Caring for an individual with dementia can bring up a variety of emotional and technical issues; don’t let things get worse before asking for help. Consultations can be done in person or over the phone. Schedule an appointment today.
