CaringKind, the Heart of Alzheimer’s Caregiving, is pleased to bring you, MAP (Memory Advocate Peers). We are proud to be piloting the program here in New York City.
MAP is a support program that pairs recently diagnosed individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment or dementia and their care partner, to a mentor - a trained volunteer, who has prior experience caring for someone living with dementia.
We hope to improve the post-diagnostic experience of people with dementia and their care partner through empathy, education, and empowerment. We will connect clients and their care partners to community resources, and we look to increase participation in clinical trials.
