At the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC), we provide a wide range of services to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and their caregivers. We offer support groups, comprehensive diagnostic evaluations, referrals for treatment, workshops for caregivers, counseling, and programs to educate and inform the general community about issues related to AD and healthy aging. In addition, we are pleased to provide a list of resources for patients and caregivers.
ADRC social worker Shehan Chin, LMSW, provides support groups and psychoeducation for caregivers who are in the ADRC in English and Chinese. Caregiver services are provided both in person and on the telephone, individually and in groups. Individual caregiver consultations focus on evaluating self-care needs and challenges, promoting self-care and psycho-social well-being and linking caregivers to specific resources as needed. Group services focus on providing support, psychoeducation and promoting mutual aid among participants.
The ADRC support team is also available to provide caregivers outside the ADRC with information about community resources in English, Spanish and Chinese.
