Welcome to Family Connect Care, where our mission is to help individuals and the families of those facing memory loss, dementia, or Alzheimer’s.
Caring for a loved one with memory loss or other cognitive disorders can be challenging. Family Connect Care has been helping families face all these concerns since 2008. Our Founder, Lauren Mahakian (“The Alzheimer’s Whisperer”), has the experience and a unique ability to offer families the help they need. Her staff, all certified memory care associates, are trained and aware when reviewing current living conditions, interactions with medical and care teams, and evaluating care needs; they are knowledgeable of the tools and opportunities available to help loved ones thrive, whether it is at home, or with residential placement.
We refer to our clients and memory home residents as The Chronologically Gifted and like to focus on the proactive approaches that can continue to lead a life with dignity and purpose. We offer our families the day-to-day help and guidance they need to overcome the challenges, as we empower and support the elders’ individuality and feelings with holistic and artistic stimulation and validation to live at their best. At home or at our residences, we help enhance quality of life, encourage independence, and assure a safe and supportive living environment that offers peace of mind for all.
How We Communicate
You will be provided with honest, direct responses to all inquiries. We offer and encourage openness and transparency so we can work hand-in-hand with our clients as a team to achieve the best possible outcomes.
At Family Connect Memory Care, we know that the safety and comfort of your loved ones are your top priorities. That’s why you give everything you have to make sure they are taken care of—your time, your energy, and most of all, your love—but sometimes, love is not enough. Sometimes you have to call in the experts.
That’s why Family Connect Care is here: to provide a loving, supportive environment with trained professionals you can trust to treat your family like our family. If you have a loved one suffering from dementia or memory impairment, our caregivers and advocates are prepared to help.
Contact us today, and let us work together to give your loved one the care they deserve.
Relax, knowing that your loved one is well cared for.
