When it comes to providing care for someone with memory loss, it's important to know you don't have to do everything yourself. But it can be difficult to know where to go to find help.
In Western New York, we are lucky to have the support of government funding and a network of agencies. The Center of Excellence for Alzheimer's Disease WNY is part of this network and works to remain active in collaborating with organizations that assist persons with dementia/Alzheimer's disease and their care partners.
