Caregiver Support Services
Caregiver Support Services at Alzheimer’s Alliance of Smith County is the umbrella that houses Client Services, the Day Club program and Respite Care Assistance program. Our Client Services offers comprehensive case management by a LMSW with assistance from a Community Healthcare Worker. This allows the Alliance the opportunity to walk with the families through their loved ones. Day Club is respite designed to meet the needs of both the person with dementia and their caregiver. Caregivers are able to drop off their loved ones for 4 hours with our trained staff/volunteers, knowing they are in a safe environment. They do activities to keep them mentally stimulated and we provide a light breakfast and lunch.The Respite Care Assistance program offers families up to 40 hours of in-home respite. The purpose of this program is to help aid the families in figuring out what the next steps will be. This looks different for every family but can include visiting long-term facilities, interviewing in-home care or planning an early retirement to stay home. The 40 hours can be broken down any way that is most feasible for the family.
