Care Options

  • In-home Care

    In-home care includes a wide range of services to help a person with Alzheimer's or another dementia stay at home. It also can help caregivers.

    In-home Care Resources:
  • Adult Day Services

    Adult day centers and Adult Day Health offer social and safe activities for people with Alzheimer's and other dementias.

  • Residential Care Settings

    Does the person with Alzheimer's or another dementia prefer a communal-living environment? Or does the person need more care than he or she can get at home? If so, a residential care setting may be the best option. Different types provide different levels of care.
