Family consultations: Helping you confront challenges from within your immediate and extended family

Family dynamics are a common concern the Alzheimer’s Association looked to address when applying for a grant from the New York State Department of Health. After receiving the grant, the team went to work on designing one of the first positions to hire: a family consultation manager. The chapter’s family consultation program was modeled after its care consultation program, which provides care partners a forum to discuss current caregiving needs while planning for the next stages of the disease, but with a more specific focus.
