If you’re caring for a family member living at home with Alzheimer’s or another dementia, there’s something you need to know: you’re not alone. Alzheimer’s Family Center (AFC) offers support for dementia caregivers from day care services to education, guidance and referrals.
AFC will listen to you, determine your needs, and identify strategies and services to help you navigate the many challenges to successful dementia care.
Creating happier, healthier days for dementia patients living at home.
At AFC, we are committed to creating an environment of health, hope and happiness for dementia patients. Our daycare services and activities deliver a measurable, positive impact on our patients, their families, and the Orange County community. The sooner you take action on a dementia diagnosis, the greater the opportunity to create and sustain the best possible quality of life.
The Alzheimer’s Family Center Dementia Caregiver Support Groups System.
Let our professional, knowledgeable staff guide you to the right resources and support, including:
DEMENTIA CAREGIVER SUPPORT GROUPS:
Share experiences, receive encouragement, and problem-solve life challenges — and feel understood. Support groups are facilitated by AFC’s Masters level clinicians and are a proven way for caregivers to build knowledge and skills while receiving support from peers and professionals alike. Attend our support group forum, held on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Join us at Alzheimer’s Family Center, 9451 Indianapolis Avenue, Huntington Beach, CA 92646. No RSVP needed. Alzheimer’s Family Center offers an Dementia Care Evening Program on Wednesdays from 4 pm to 9 pm for caregivers who need respite in order to attend the Support Groups.
ALZHEIMER’S CAREGIVER COUNSELING:
Our individual and group counseling options provide you with the best resources, education, and tools to cope with the inevitable stresses of family caregiving. Visit our Alzheimer’s Caregiver Counseling page for more details.
Look to our social work and nursing professionals to become “partners in caring” — assisting families with common care issues for loved ones enrolled in our adult day care programs.

3 Key questions for the family caregiver
1. Do you need a place that will take care of your loved one when you are at work, or need to take a break from non-stop care of your loved one?
2. Do you ever feel guilty about being frustrated or angry with your loved one?
3. Do you wish you had someone to talk to? Someone who really understands what you are going through – and can offer real answers, complete information, and a detailed plan to help make the life of your loved one as healthy, happy and productive as possible?
If you answered, “yes” to one or more of these questions, Alzheimer’s Family Center stands ready to help. Call (714) 593-1844.
