Alzheimer's Association Helpline resources and Ginger has a birthday!

In this episode of Living with Alzheimer’s, I speak with Caitlin Goyer, Helpline Program Coordinator for Alzheimer’s Association Michigan Chapter, about Alzheimer’s Association’s call-in helpline and the resources it provides families and caregivers. 

The Alzheimer's Association provides a 24-hour dementia helpline is available at (800) 272-3900 and provides:

  • Local referrals for medical professionals familiar with dementia
  • Living communities for people with dementia
  • Information about respite for caregivers
  • Information about respite scholarships
  • Informational pamphlets about dementia and caregiving best practices
  • Advice for dealing with issues related to caring for someone with dementia
  • Care consultation to create individualized caregiving plans
  • Support groups for families and caregivers

Then we celebrate a special birthday and speak with Ginger about turning 80.
