How we help…
- Support/Advocacy through Caregiver Consulting and Advising – our certified Caregiver Consultants are experts who will get to know your family, make recommendations, explain the support services offered in our area, and guide you through difficult transitions and decisions.
- Education through Customized Training – our Training and Education Coordinator, an RN, can visit with you in your home, our office, or by telephone to help learn about adaptive equipment, safety issues, special diets, medications, disease specific information, and the aging process.
- Respite Care ~ A Gift of Time -experts say family caregivers need to give themselves at least four hours of respite per week for a time of self care. We assist with respite through Volunteer Respite and Grants to help pay for in-home respite care,
- Many other programs, such as monthly Caregiver Support Groups in 4 locations, Powerful Tools for Caregivers classes, Memory Club, peer support, a lending library, “summer camp for respite” scholarships, and Good Grief (caregiver bereavement).
Most of our services are provided free of charge, while others are provided by suggested donations according to an income-based sliding fee scale.
