Care Guiding

The heart of what we do is working individually with families. Our Family Consultants (or Care Guides) meet with families every day in person, by phone, zoom, or email to discuss problems, find solutions, and offer support and understanding. We like to have a 90-minute meeting with new families to get to know you and your particular situation and for you to get to know us. Afterward, we meet with some families on a regular basis, even weekly. For others, we become a resource they know they can turn to whenever they need help, advice, and support. While our in-person meetings occur only in Collier County, we meet with families across the US and even around the world on Zoom.

Support Groups

We have over 30 Support Groups each month. Some are disease-specific, such as our Lewy Body, FTD, or Vascular Support Groups. Some are designed for special audiences, such as our Adult Children or 12 Step Groups. Our General Support Groups are designed for anyone who wishes to come. You can check the listing of our groups on our calendar and review the descriptions for more details.

Engagement Opportunities

During our General Support Groups, we also host our Club Room for people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of Brain Change. Our Ladies & Gentlemen’s Clubs are designed not only to provide fun and engaging activities but also to give care partners a break from care. In addition, we have specially designed programs aimed at creating enhanced well-being, such as our Meet Me in the Garden program with the Naples Botanical Garden.

Wanderer's ID Program

In partnership with the Collier County Sherriff’s Office, for the past 28 years, we have offered a Wanderer’s ID Program. Through this program, we collect vital information and provide a special medical alert bracelet. When a person on the ID program goes missing, the Sheriff’s deputies have all the information they need to start the search, including a recent picture of the person, the family’s contact information, and other important details.
