Caregiver Support

Helping caregivers navigate the journey of memory loss. You care for them, let us care for you.

Caregiver Support

Caring for an aging loved one can be a journey of joy but also one of uncertainty. You’re not alone.

While we cannot change a dementia diagnosis, we can provide you with the information you need to make good decisions about your loved one’s care. Our goal is to help you feel more in control and better able to deal with your situation

“As for aging, I do the job because there are a number of people and agencies focusing on the person living with dementia, but there are not a lot of resources on how to help the caregiver. I want to assist the caregiver not only with what to do, but how to do it.”

– Lynn Wood

Clients receive free caregiving strategies, referrals to community resources, and much more! Please contact Lynn Wood, Caregiver Support Coordinator, at lwood@mhamidsouth.org for more information.
