Family Caregiver Support Program

 

For people caring for an aging parent, spouse, or an adult child with disabilities, or an older adult raising a grandchild. Caregiving can turn your life upside down.  We’ll help you get it right again.

 

Caregiving could be one of the most important things you ever do.  It can be challenging and rewarding—and often frustrating.  The Family Caregiver Support Program provides the support and services you need.

If you’re a caregiver, you are not alone. Did you know...

  • One-quarter of American families—or roughly 54 million people—care for an older family member, an adult child with disabilities, or a friend.

  • Nearly 44% of all caregivers are men.

  • More than one in three caregivers live with the care recipient.

  • More than half the family caregivers are between the ages of 35 and 64—struggling to balance work, children, and caregiving. 

 

Finding ways to cope with the strains and stresses of caregiving can be challenging, but we are here to help. These are some of the services we provide:

  • In-home assessments to help you determine how much and what kinds of care are needed

  • Information about the resources available and referrals to the specific services and programs that meet your needs

  • Counseling and support groups to help you cope with the stress, worry, and loneliness that caregivers often experience

  • Education and training in the skills that caregiving requires and specialized support in dealing with the effects of Alzheimer's disease and dementia

  • Support groups where caregivers share both their difficulties and their tips for supporting their loved ones

  • Meetings with caregivers individually and as a family to work on particular needs.

  • Assistance in finding respite care to give yourself “time off” from your caregiving responsibilities
