AS A CAREGIVER YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

Community Care-Giving provides tools that promote and empower a positive and successful caregiving experience in an effort to improve the health and well-being of caregivers and their loved ones. The services include assessment of person-centered needs, educational workshops, caregiver support groups, self-care activities, and caregiver and loved one activities and events.

For us, Community Care-Giving begins with YOU!  Our dedicated professionals will meet with you to help design a care plan that fits the needs of your family.

COA’s Community Care Giving offers a free, confidential service for St. Johns County residents and their families.
Our qualified dementia care specialist will:

  • Set up a time to discuss your situation one-on-one
  • Develop an individualized education and needs-assessment
  • Offer support and guidance that will empower you to implement solutions for your challenges.

What comes after the diagnosis?
Most people who are faced with a diagnosis of dementia, Alzheimer ’s disease or other forms of memory loss or brain trauma simply don’t know where to turn! COA can help you take that all-important next step!

Most importantly, please remember that YOU ARE NOT ALONE! We’re here to help.
