Care and Support for Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregivers
Caregiving services are united under the Family Resource Program at New York Memory Center. Caregiver programs are funded in party by a grant from the New York State Department of Health under the Alzheimer’s Caregiver Initiative, which was initiated to develop and test strategies and systems to address these needs of dementia caregivers.
The Family Resource Program offers educational and wellness programs for caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s and related dementia disorders with services that include (click on links for dates and more information):

Referral to partnering organizations for short-term respite grants or other services, such as research studies
Educational sessions and workshops, often co-sponsored with other agencies
