As specialists in Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias, Camarillo Health Care District understands the challenges and adjustments families experience while living with this diagnosis. In the role of family caregiver, making decisions about such things as daily care, home safety and wandering, diffcult behaviors, or the timing of other hard decisions, can be overwhelming.
Working through innovative partnerships with the Arthur M. Rupe Foundation, the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving (RCI), and the Administration for Community Living, District staff are trained and certified in the Dealing with Dementia program. Dealing with Dementia, a program devleoped by RCI, provides practical strategies and best practices for caregivers, which assists them in providing care for their loved ones and themselves. The goal is for Alzheimer's and dementia family caregivers to gain a better understanding of dementia, utilize strategies to effectively manage problem behaviors, and handle caregiver stress and burnout. If you or someone you know could benefit from this program, please call us at the Caregiver Center at (800) 900-8582.
Additionally, the District provides a broad range of other programs and services that offer professional and practical help for you and your family.
