It is often difficult to navigate the various support services and providers and to discern what is best for loved ones with Alzheimer's or dementia.

Caregivers should think about particular needs of their loved ones and specific concerns they have about their care. Some concerns could include how the affected person can live as independently as possible; financial capabilities for care; days/times the caregiver needs help; in-home vs. long-term care; and providers' reputation and quality of care.
