Caregiver Support Program

We offer support for anyone caring for a senior, an individual with a diagnosis of dementia, and for grandparents raising grandchildren.  We currently offer supportive counseling, resource information and linkage, and access to available grant funding for respite and supplemental needs.

How do I know when to ask for help?

  • When you are feeling overwhelmed.
  • When you feel alone.
  • If you are missing work.
  • When you are feeling guilt, anger or frustration.
  • If you are losing your temper due to your loved ones’ behaviors. (i.e. violence, arguing, lack of sleep, repeating themselves)

What Happens When I Call?

You will talk to a Case Associate who will take your information and assign you to a Care Coordinator in your area. Your Coordinator will then call you and set up an appointment to further discuss your situation, complete an assessment as needed, and provide you with information on caregiver support programs and services in your area.
