Golden Buckeye Center for Dementia Caregiving

If you provide help or assistance to a family member or friend living with memory problems,

You are not alone. We are here to help.

It’s easy for caregivers to feel like they’re on an island when they are providing help to a loved one or a patient living with dementia. Caregivers give so much of themselves that, sometimes, they struggle with caring for themselves.

The Golden Buckeye Center for Dementia Caregiving at The Ohio State University College of Nursing is here to help. We have world-renowned experts and researchers who offer trainings, resources and research to build connection, competence and confidence as we support family and formal care partners across the state of Ohio.

You are answering a calling to care. We are here to support you in that purpose.

Tell us about yourself so that we can direct you to resources that can help: go.osu.edu/gbcintakeform2024.
