Online Support Groups

  • ALZConnected®:
    Living with Alzheimer's or caring for someone with the disease may make you feel alone. ALZConnected®, powered by the Alzheimer's Association, is a free online community where everyone affected by Alzheimer's or another dementia can safely share their concerns and get advice.

The entire Rianda House team is working virtually from our remote offices. We are hard at work focusing on coordinating critical services for our community of older adults.

Please reach out to us if you need help, know someone who does, would like to help, or would just like to hear a friendly voice. We are poised to connect assistance, resources and services to anyone who needs a helping hand with things like food deliveries, meals, feeling alone, caregiver support and more. Contact us at (707) 963-8555, ext. 101 or via e-mail [email protected].

We appreciate your patience and understanding during these challenging times and encourage you to stay home, stay connected to your support network, and stay safe. Remember we are here for you if you need us! We will get through this together.

Stay Healthy!
