Dementia Care Support Services

How can a Dementia Specialist help you?

Our team of Dementia Specialists provides family care partners with a complimentary, unique service to help them gain a better understanding of dementia and to learn about community resources and long-range planning.

Dementia Specialists teach care partners effective strategies that can improve communication, and new ways to respond and engage daily that will enhance the quality of life for both the person living with dementia and the care partner.
