Mission Statement

The mission of CaringKind* is to create, deliver, and promote comprehensive and compassionate care and support services for individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research. We achieve our mission by providing programs and services for individuals with dementia, their family and professional caregivers; increasing public awareness; collaborating with research centers; and informing public policy through advocacy.

Description

At CaringKind, we see people, not a disease. We understand that one caregiver’s experience is not like any other. And we help individuals and families affected by a dementia diagnosis to find the right path to best meet their unique needs. From that first call to our 24-hour Helpline, our trained professionals offer the guidance caregivers need, when they need it, to make each day a little bit brighter. At CaringKind, we know there is no one-size-fits-all approach to dementia caregiving. Our Education and Training programs and Social Work Services help ease the emotional, physical, psychological, and financial burdens of managing the disease, while we treat each individual and family with dignity and compassion. Our support groups are a lifeline for caregivers.
