Free website offers solutions for dementia caregivers

Best Programs for Caregiving is a first-of-its kind, free online database that offers family and friend caregivers detailed information about proven dementia care programs that are available in your own community. 

Just enter your zip code and you’ll be presented with support programs that are offered either in person, by telephone or online that are available to you. There is detailed information about what the program can do for you, if there are any costs involved, enrollment instructions and where it’s available.

If you’re helping to care for someone with dementia, the resources in Best Programs for Caregiving can help you in a number of ways.  

Skills training: There are programs that offer skills training, to help improve your confidence in providing physical care, like bathing, dressing and eating, as well as overall caregiving basics. 

Care Navigation: Some programs take a look at all that’s involved in caring for an older adult and help you to coordinate all your activities. These programs will help you find resources you need like transportation, help in the home, respite services and financial guidance. 

Caregiver well-being: It’s important for caregivers not to neglect their own well-being while caring for a loved one (although many do!). There are many programs available to help you relieve stress and anxiety, improve your physical and mental health. 

Take a look at the website and see all the programs that may answer your needs. All of the programs on this website have been proven by research to provide effective outcomes. 

There’s also information about programs that have been adapted to meet the needs of various racial, ethnic and LGBTQ+ populations.
