All Assistance at A Place to Start is Complimentary (no charge)
A Place to Start aims to provide guidance to family caregivers by creating a personalized course of action for the care of your loved one.
In our experience, dementia is an ever-changing disease for your loved one and your family. There are always new issues, situations, and emotional support needs that arise. We want to help take some of the unknown and stress away, let’s make a plan.
We can help…
A Place to Start will assemble a list of available resources that pertain to your specific needs.
• Assisted Living Communities: A Place to Start will provide their services to ACCOMPANY you on tours of local assisted living communities for your loved one. (We have found this to be very helpful for families to guide them gently thru this process.)
• Help organize Medical and Legal Documents: Power of Attorney, Health Care Directive, Medication lists, Family and Emergency contact lists.
• Help connect you with reputable local in home care for your loved one.
• Introduce you to Adult Day Programs in your area.
• Help you find local support groups to attend.
• Suggest books that help you understand what is happening to your loved one so you can be an informed caregiver. Suggest books that help The Caregiver as well to take care of themselves along this journey.
• Sit down with families to listen, make a plan, and show you how you can live with this diagnosis and have some wonderful memories and moments.
