Dementia Informed Counseling

for Couples & Families

Dementia Informed Counseling Service

Dementia Informed Counseling brings renewed hope, insight, and life to a couple’s or family’s previously solid relationships turned upside down by dementia. This can help get relationships back on track with new understanding with just a little professional guidance. Each counseling session helps the person living with dementia, the caregiver and/or family to reconnect with each other with new viewpoints but with the same love as before the dementia. Counselors take a positive and constructive approach in identifying solutions to the new situation that are do-able and beneficial for all.

What Happens During a Counseling Session

Sessions last up to one hour and are scheduled with a licensed counselor. The counselor asks questions, and solutions are provided. Should there be a significant roadblock that may forestall the desired solutions, a referral to a community provider may be possible.
