Caregivers & Community
Offering guidance, support and education for patients, families and the community.
Before the Cure, There are Caregivers™
In addition to raising funds for world-class medical care and research, Keep Memory Alive also supports Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health’s Patient and Family Services programs. These programs are designed to aid patients, caregivers and the community as they navigate the extraordinary challenges of brain disorders.
Our site-based and online educational programs and library are available to the entire community at no-cost, thanks to generous support from Keep Memory Alive and its engaged and impassioned donors. These programs are designed to increase knowledge, coping skills and a sense of well-being for families affected by brain disorders.
Support groups for individuals and their families affected by brain disorders are open to the community with no reservation needed. You’re not alone. Meet with others coping with similar experiences while under the guidance of trained professionals.
Beyond physical care, emotional wellness services are offered to our patients. Counseling services are offered to address concerns such as mood, anxiety, relationships, grief, loss, adjustment to diagnosis and more.
*Currently for patients and their family members only
Artistic creation offers conversational outlets to those affected by memory disorders. Thanks to philanthropic support from the artistic community, Keep Memory Alive offers several therapeutic art programs for patients and their caregivers.
You shouldn’t have to navigate the challenges of an Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis alone. There are many community resources that provide assistance to those managing a brain disorder, and our staff can help you access these. Resources span state-licensed personal care agencies, home delivered meals, memory care facilities and more.
