Alzheimer's Foundation of America
Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s (AFA) social service department is the focal point of our care provider support. Through our toll free helpline, AFA’s licensed social workers field calls from the national care community. Daily, our licensed social workers respond to questions providing direction to assistance individuals, families, and care providers to local resources to meet the specific needs of individuals living with Alzheimer’s and other Dementia related illnesses. AFA’s licensed social workers are also available for contact and continued support view Skype, live chat and email. No question is too small; no concern is too insignificant. Our services are available in both English & Spanish.
AFA’s social service department provides family oriented services, including support groups for the busy care giver or families in need of support. Understanding the time constraints when caring for a loved one, these support groups are provided over the phone, so not to take the care giver from the home. Within the social services department, care givers are provided the opportunity to educate themselves and to connect with other care givers and AFA’s licensed social workers, through Care Connection – AFA’s free, teleconference designed for both family caregivers and professional caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses. These teleconferences are a valuable mix of coaching, guest speakers, questions and answers--and sharing. All teleconferences geared towards community professionals and family members alike.
