Pathways to Care

Helping individuals and families address the challenges of serious illness

  •    Supportive individual, family and group counseling from
       day of diagnosis
  •    Referrals to resources
  •    Discussion and assistance completing advance
       directives
  •    Advocacy (insurance, financial, legal)
  •    Assistance navigating complex medical systems
  •    Emotional support at end of life
  •    Bereavement counseling for individuals, families, and
       groups 
  •    On-site grief counseling 
  •    Chronic illness support group   

Through the New York State Department of Health Alzheimer’s Disease Caregiver Support Initiative, WJCS' Pathways to Care program provides free professional assistance to individuals and families caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
