The majority of family caregivers are overwhelmed by the responsibilities of care giving. 35% of caregivers for people with Alzheimer’s or another dementia report that their health has gotten worse due to care responsibilities.

 

We provide support, education, resources and respite to family caregivers and quality no cost care to those individuals living with memory loss, Alzheimer’s, other Dementias and other challenges of aging.

 

Every 65 SECONDS someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s Disease.
In Texas, 1.38 million caregivers are caring for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Help enhance caregiver quality of life.

Find Your Program

The heart of our mission is to bring caring volunteers together with families in need of support. Programs are complimentary to caregivers and those suffering from memory loss or other challenges of aging.

Gathering Place

A 3.5 hour highly engaging program specifically for individuals living with early to moderate Alzheimer’s, other dementias or memory loss. Planned activities strengthen motor and social skills through games, music, crafts, lunch and socialization. Family caregivers receive 3.5 hours of respite, a break and time away from caregiving responsibilities, while their loved one attends each Gathering Place.

Second Family

A homebound program focused on helping individuals living with illness or other challenges due to aging. An extended family of trained volunteers offers support and companionship for homebound individuals who belong to a partnering congregation. Family caregivers receive respite, a break and time away from their caregiving responsibilities.

Common Ground

A support group established for family caregivers that offers emotional support, encouragement, friendships and helpful tips about self-care and caregiving. Family caregivers caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s, other dementias, memory loss or other challenges of aging may join this monthly support group.

Caregiver Conferences

Educational events that connect family caregivers with tools and community resources focused on providing quality care to their loved ones.
