Diagnostic Centers
A differential diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease requires a complete medical, neurological, and psychiatric evaluation as well as neuropsychological tests.

Home Care Agencies
Provides health care services in the residence of the patient. It allows people to remain in the comfort of familiar surroundings throughout the course of the disease:

Adult Day Care Programs
Community-based group programs designed to meet the needs of functionally and/or cognitively impaired adults through a care plan.

Free Legal Services
Legal and financial planning should begin soon after the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or related dementia has been made. As the disease progresses they will need to rely on others to act in their best interests.

Respite Services
Residential respite provides temporary, time-limited care when family members or service providers are unavailable. In-home respite provides home care workers to supervise the person with dementia.

Hospice
Hospice is a special kind of care for the terminally ill. The focus is on caring, not curing. In most cases care is provided in the patient’s home, although care can also be provided in freestanding hospice centers.
