When the Alzheimer’s Resource Center of Connecticut opened in 1992, it was one of only a handful of non-profit providers focused exclusively on caring for individuals at all stages of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia.
Today we are care providers, researchers and most of all, we are pioneers in dementia care, recognized as one of the most knowledgeable resources for Alzheimer’s disease in the nation. We understand the challenges that confront families on this difficult journey and we have developed effective models of care that are respectful, dignified and have compassion at their core.
Our Community Services include information and guidance to help families who are caring at home for a person with dementia. Active Lives: An Early Memory Loss program provides valuable support to individuals affected by early memeory loss and help them sustain their independence through services tailored to their needs. The Family Education Series has weekly seminars covering practical approaches to caring for a relative at home. Perhaps our most important service to families caring for a person with dementia at home, is the Adult Day program. It provides daily respite to home caregivers and is a safe, stimulating and social environment for individuals with mild or early-stage dementia.
We also offer Residential Services in our Assisted Living and multi-stage Skilled Nursing programs. Here you will find an uncommon level of support for your family and advanced expertise, empathy and compassion as your family member progresses through this illness.
The Alzheimer’s Resource Center is an important resource to other dementia care providers. Health care organizations and professionals look to us for consultation, dementia care research and innovative training for dementia care staff.
We are breaking new ground and setting a new, enlightened standard of care that, we believe, will one day be embraced everywhere.
