Geriatric therapist for caregiver of spouse with dementia
With her permission, I am looking for a therapist for my mom, who is the caregiver for my dad/her husband who is suffering from dementia/memory loss. As we all can imagine, it is so challenging to navigate supporting a partner suffering with memory loss. As every journey is different, she would ideally prefer one-on-one sessions. She is located in the Los Angeles area, and is open to in person anywhere near there or virtual. My dad is enrolled in the cognitive care clinic at UCLA, but they have only been able to give group support recommendations and JCFS in LA did not have any recommendations. If you don’t have a specific name, if you have general search terms or resources that may help, I would appreciate those as well. I have to believe others have faced similar challenges and may have resources.
I very much appreciate your help.
