Alzheimer’s Support Services for the Elderly

By Lee Nyberg, 9:00 am on

Seniors with Alzheimer’s disease face unique challenges, but there are many resources available that can help them face those obstacles. The Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s Foundation of America and the Alzheimer’s Disease Education and Referral Center (ADEAR) are major organizations dedicated to helping elderly individuals with Alzheimer’s, and trusted Omaha caregivers from Home Care Assistance can explain how each support system can help your senior loved one.

Alzheimer’s Association

The local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association is a goldmine of help and information. Local support groups schedule regular in-person and online meetings that help both seniors and family members receive emotional, educational and social assistance. Support groups encourage seniors and demonstrate creative, insightful ways of solving problems as well as developing strategies to maintain health and wellbeing. 

The Alzheimer’s Association also provides resources online and with an in-person, two-part program that assists with legal and financial planning. This resource addresses strategies for long-term care, appropriate legal plans, an understanding of necessary legal documents, and finding financial assistance such as those offered by government programs, tax deductions, and credits.

Alzheimer’s Foundation of America

The Alzheimer’s Foundation maintains a national toll-free helpline during weekdays to answer immediate questions and address concerns. The foundation staff also communicates with care partners through live chats, Skype calls, and emails. Local member groups provide aid such as memory wellness daycare centers to improve seniors’ quality of life while supporting their loved ones.

Alzheimer’s Disease Education and Referral Center

ADEAR is a part of the National Institute on Aging offering online, phone and email support to seniors and their caregivers. Seniors’ families will find stress-relieving financial aid and planning information through a related link to the U.S. government’s alzheimers.gov website, a gateway to federal, state and private financial resources. 

A strong support system is the cornerstone to senior wellbeing when he or she has a cognitive disease like Alzheimer’s. Home Care Assistance is a leading provider of Alzheimer’s home care for seniors in Omaha, and our dedicated caregivers offer emotional support and personal care assistance to seniors in the comfort and convenience of home.
