Dementia Helpline: Dementia Support

Dementia is an all-inclusive term associated with a loss of cognitive function related to several neurological conditions. It describes different medical conditions and a group of symptoms affecting memory loss, cognitive problems, and psychological changes. Most causes of dementia are Alzheimer's; however, many different diseases can cause it as well. Dementia-related conditions affect millions of individuals globally.

A dementia diagnosis creates great uncertainty and the road ahead is confusing. It affects the person with the condition and everyone around them. There are many resources that will provide help and support for everybody involved. Contacting a dementia helpline for yourself or a loved one can be challenging, but ExtendaTouch is here to help connect you with other family caregivers.

Whether you want to share your own experiences about managing dementia or learn more about the challenges and successes others have experienced, the ExtendaTouch dementia helpline will enable you to connect with actual people who experience the same daily challenges. ExtendaTouch is completely entirely free. You will find other caregivers who can share lessons learned, tips, and information. We will have direct links to resources that can help you feel part of a helpful resource. Caregiver gather to share resources and opportunities to help everyone live their best life while providing care for their loved ones.

How can ExtendaTouch help me?

The ExtendaTouch support group consists of unpaid family caregivers across the entire U.S. ExtendaTouch provides online tools for its members to share information and support; perhaps even helpful tips about:

  • Coping with symptoms
  • Preserving skills and function
  • Dementia caregiver support
  • Common signs of dementia
  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle

You can feel safe at ExtendaTouch because it is an anonymously private service to express yourself openly or learn from other caregivers about your most pressing questions. ExtendaTouch is here to assist you in meeting other family caregivers to find information and support. ExtendaTouch doesn't provide medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.

Hello everyone! My name is Rebekah and I work at a skilled-care nursing facility in central Georgia. I have worked closely with residents with dementia for over 9 years and have gone through many, many different types of classes to help me work with them as effectively as possible. Since dementia can look different from person to person, each class I attended touched on different aspects of the disease. I look forward to offering help to anyone looking for assistance with their loved one and hope to help you navigate this tricky disease. Please reach out if you have any questions! Rebekah K.
