The needs of the family caregiver are considered in order to help them with their responsibilities.
Are you providing care and assistance for a spouse, relative, friend or grandchild (or other relative child)? Do you have questions or problems for which you need information? Are you feeling overwhelmed by the responsibilities and wonder if there is help available for you?
This program helps to reduce the stress of a caregiver by offering basic services through the National Family Caregiver Support Program which was established by the 2000 amendment to the federally-funded Older American’s Act of 1965.
Call or fill out the contact form to discuss your personal caregiving situation and options for care or services in the community to assist you and your loved one.
The Senior Resource Guide is available to offer you information about resources/supports in our area. However, we encourage you to contact our Information and Assistance Dept. in order to discuss your personal caregiving situation.
