Support & Services

Caregiver Support

The Alzheimer’s Association also offers wonderful online tools for support such as:

  • Message boards to connect with other caregivers looking for and giving advice or strategies, as well message boards for individuals with Alzheimer’s to be able to connect together.
  • Care Team Calendar which is a great online system to help organize your calendar and share it with friends and family who want to help, but are not sure when would be ideal.
  • The Illinois chapter also has an “E-Helpline.” Once registered, you will be asked a series of questions to determine your exact needs in order for them to provide you with the proper information.
