 If it’s time to move your loved one into a residential care setting, be sure to look into our specialty care homes. Focusing on the individual, we provide the best quality of care for those with dementia of all types, as well as those with other cognitive impairments. Be sure to request a tour of our facilities that may be best for your loved one. We have three locations and more on the way! Learn more.

In-home Care

When it’s time for care care at home, it’s time for Family Connect Care. We hire our own staff of qualified and educated dementia caregivers / care associates who are simply the best of the best. If your loved one needs or desires to live at home, it doesn’t mean your quality of life needs to suffer. Contact us today for a free, no obligation consultation. Our team of professionals is happy to help with no pressure applied. Learn more.

Care management

One of the often misunderstood aspects of caring for your loved one with dementia is managing their care. Families often think this is solely their responsibility, but this is the farthest from the truth. Family care managers don’t have experience working with dementia and advocating for their loved one with medical professionals and care providers. We do, and we bring peace of mind allowing you to again enjoy life, knowing your loved one is being well-cared for. Learn more.

Our Services

We Can Help

We know that the safety, care, and comfort of your loved one is your top priority. That’s why you give your time, your energy, and everything you have to care for them—but

Sometimes, love is not enough.

If you have a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or other dementia/memory loss, it is hard to go at it alone. Even at this difficult stage, your loved one can thrive, and you can achieve some peace of mind. Avoid the bitter second-guessing and feelings of guilt. Care at home (in-home care)Care Management and Coordination, Placement and a home setting that specializes in Memory Care are just a few of the services available.

Call LAUREN with Family Connect Care for an assessment of the current conditions and for a better understanding of what the future may bring. Contact us for a chat.
