Who is this service for?

Your parent does not have to have dementia in order for you to benefit from Dementia Navigators expertise. The transitions package is for families struggling with challenges related to aging parents such as change in health, caregiver burnout, increased care needs, transitioning out of the home or advanced planning. The driving dilemma is for families whose parents may be having difficulty driving safely due to medical conditions. The medical condition can be related to either memory loss or physical challenges.
