We work with local, regional, and national partners to bring dementia resources to families in Southwest Washington.
Our staff cannot screen for or diagnose dementia. If you have concerns about your or your loved one's memory, it is best to make an appointment with a primary care provider. Share your concerns with the provider and ask if a cognitive evaluation can be done.
Contact our Resource Center. We can help you learn more about different supports that are available in our area and give you tools to help plan for the road ahead.
Whether you're looking for information on in-home care, respite care, or facility-based care, our Resource Center can help you understand the different options available. Please contact our Resource Center to speak to a resource specialist today.
We have three programs for unpaid or informal caregivers: Family Caregiver Support Program, Tailored Support for Older Adults, and Medicaid Alternative Care. You do not need to know which program you want to apply for, and we will help you learn what would be the best program for you.
Local Resources & Guides
Looking for specific programs or resources for people with dementia? Our Resource Center is the best place to start. Our Resource Specialists can help connect you to local dementia support groups, talk about in-home care or respite care options, and more.
