RESOURCES FOR FAMILIES & CAREGIVERS
Dementia Alliance of North Carolina
Dementia Alliance of North Carolina provides personal, individualized support to thousands of families from across the state through an intentional model of support; one caregiver, one individual and one interaction at a time. Our programs offer CARE – Comfort, Assistance, Resources and Education to individuals and families living with dementia.
About Our Programs:
Dementia Navigation: Our Dementia Navigator determines the individual needs of incoming families. As a result, we are able to provide personalized information, referrals, and other forms of caregiver assistance.
Education: We provide in-person and online education for families and professional caregivers. By attending these workshops, conferences, and support groups, caregivers experience reduced stress and improved quality of life.
Music & Memory at Home: An evidence-based program that helps people living with dementia find renewed joy and connection through music.
Local Research: We fund local research of dementia science and care options.
