Caregiver Support Services at Alzheimer’s Alliance of Smith County is the umbrella that houses Client Services, the Day Club program, and the Respite Care Assistance program. Client Services offers comprehensive case management by an LMSW with assistance from a Community Healthcare Worker. Day Club is a respite for both the person with dementia and their caregiver in four-hour intervals with trained staff/volunteers in a safe environment. The Respite Care Assistance program offers families up to 40 hours of in-home respite to determine the next steps. Respite provides opportunities to visit long-term facilities, interview in-home care, or plan an early retirement to stay home.
Mission/Vision: Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease and the Alzheimer’s Alliance of Smith County is committed to walking beside all those in Smith County seeking our help throughout the journey.
About: After 39 years of service, the Alzheimer’s Alliance of Smith County has grown into a unique organization. As the retired community and aging population in Smith County continues to increase, the rate of Alzheimer’s and other dementia are also anticipated to increase. The Alzheimer’s Alliance of Smith County is a local, independent nonprofit committed to providing life-changing support to persons with dementia and their caregivers. With a small staff, a determined board, and wonderful volunteers, we provide the only access to support, assistance, and education that is available for families in our area struggling to cope with this disease.
