Alzheimer’s Disease Assistance Program

Alzheimer's Disease Assistance Program

Are you unsure of where to find help in taking care of a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia? HopeHealth Community VNA's free program is open to all in our service area. It connects caregivers to respite opportunities, resources and support groups.

Our team can walk you through the steps needed to secure a diagnosis and get referrals to community programs and services. We also stay in touch on a regular basis to monitor your loved one’s condition and provide advice and emotional support when needed.

Learn What Our Alzheimer’s Disease Assistance Program Offers

Respite Care

Caregivers who need a break to do errands, have an appointment or another need can benefit from either in-home and community adult day care respite care services. We offer the services of a private home health aide for up to three hours a week for a maximum of nine hours a month for in-home care. You can also choose up to three days per month at an adult day health center at Massachusetts sites in Attleboro, Mansfield, Norwood and Taunton.

Caregiver Support

Talking with others who understand what it is like to be a caregiver can be very healing and validating. We invite you to join one of our virtual monthly caregiver support groups, which are free and open to the public. These groups offer a safe and supportive space for sharing and learning together. Learn more about our caregiver support groups.


Our trained and knowledgeable staff can help coordinate care as you prepare for and cope with each stage of your loved one’s condition. We provide referrals along with advice and emotional support as needed.


We teach about home safety, how dementia progresses and tips for communicating with a loved one at different stages of the illness. Our staff reaches out regularly by phone to stay informed about changes in your loved one’s condition and evaluate their needs, as well as yours.
