We are lucky to have a great partnership with the Northern Nevada Alzheimer's Association. They offer a variety of no cost services that benefit our seniors and folks that are dealing with the symptoms of Alzheimer's or a related dementia.
The first is the Alzheimer's Caregiver Support Group. They meet the fourth Wednesday of each month from 2:30 - 4:00 p.m. in the Joshua Tree Room at the Senior Center. The group is a life saver for many family members dealing with any stage of a loved one's dementia.
The second is a care consultation by appointment to discuss any issues you may have related to Alzheimer's, dementia or other memory related disorder. Call the 24/7 contact center, 1-800-272-3900, to schedule an appointment for the first or third Wednesday of the month.
Additionally, The Association provides a variety of informational brochures throughout the building and periodic caregiver and community education presentations.
For general information, respite grant eligibility, community resources, online education, support and care consultations with master's level social workers, please contact 1-800-272-3900.
