Dementia Resources & Organizations
While we are proud to guide families through the legal issues they may be facing after a dementia or Alzheimer’s diagnosis, we know we cannot give you everything you need during this difficult time.
Instead, we would like to direct you to a couple of useful resources and organizations where you can find everything from basic information to support groups in your area:
- The Alzheimer's Association aims to unite caregivers, provide support to those facing Alzheimer’s, and advance research into the disease.
- Dementia Society of America® (DSA) provides an information hotline, a variety of online resources, and tools to locate support. The organization aims to enhance the quality of life for those living with dementia and their caregivers.
- Assisted Living in Michigan: Access this free resource that provides comprehensive information on topics like financial support and assisted living options that are available in Michigan.
- Senior Housing Guide: This Senior Housing Guide compares the costs for independent living communities in Michigan. It also highlights independent living costs with other types of senior care and lists some helpful resources for aging adults and their families.
