Alzheimer's Disease Initiative

The Alzheimer’s Disease Initiative (ADI) at the Meyerhoff Center began in January 1994. For family caregivers who have a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s, the ADI program provides in-home respite care so that primary caregivers can get a break to run errands, attend their own medical appointments, or take some much-needed time to rest, relax, socialize, and attend caregiver support activities.

Professional counselors offer assessments and case management services including information and referral to help caregivers find the resources they need for themselves and their loved ones.

Caregiver Support Groups

Caregiver support groups are available to help caregivers better cope with the stresses of caregiving. We offer speakers on a variety of subjects relating to caregiving and provide opportunities to caregivers to share with one another. Participants also have the opportunity to attend caregiver conferences, community events and social activities outside of the center. See the center calendar for details.
