How our mission helps the families and caregivers

At ADSC we help by empowering family members and caregivers at every step of the way. By educating on the diseases the symptoms and by providing personal caregiver experiences. That way family members and caregivers can make sense of what is happening to their loved ones, the caregiver, and their family.
Our focus is on how to apply this information to their specific situations.
We do this through our support groups, web site, seminars, peer counseling, family mediation and our referral services.
