New here

Hi, I'm new to caregiving for my mother, who is starting to show signs of dementia.  I'm just looking for some support.  I need tips and somewhere to vent.  I hope I'm in the right spot.

Hi, Angie! My name is Nichole

Hi, Angie! My name is Nichole and I am the Program Coordinator at Caregiver Action Network.

You are in the right spot! Being a new caregiver can have its own set of challenges. A good place to start may be looking at the tools and resources we have categorized as being particularly useful when starting your journey as a caregiver. Those can be found here. Of particular interest may be our Alzheimer's Videos

And I would also recommend reaching out to our Caregiver Help Desk. You can reach someone live from 8AM Eastern to 7PM Eastern, Monday through Friday, by phone at 855-227-3640 or by clicking "Help Desk" button you see at the bottom right of your screen to reach them by chat.

Hope this has been of some help. I am so happy your reached out via the Care Community. Feel free to respond here or contact me directly ( if there is anything else I can help with.


Thank you

Hi Nicole,

Thank you so much for your reply.  I really appreciate your support.  I will try some of the links.  And I have already chatted twice with your help desk.  Both ladies were super helpful.
