I take care of both my parents and haven't had a day off in almost 4 years. The respite five hours a week is such a blessing. It gives me time to run errands and if I have time left over, I take myself out to lunch or go to a park and read a book. Those five hours are a gift of time that I never had.

Services for Caregivers

  • Information – Caregivers can find answers to questions about community resources and care assistance services for elderly, disabled and ill adults. Knowledgeable staff is on-hand to assist caregivers, listen to their concerns and guide them to find the assistance they need. A library of audio, visual, reading and web-based information is available for caregivers as well.
  • Referrals – Caregivers in need of care assistance services can access short-term or long-term care services through private pay or publicly funded programs based on their loved ones' eligibility. The center can link caregivers to a variety of community resources, social service organizations and providers of services to meet their unique needs.
  • Support Groups – The Support Group for New Caregivers helps individuals find answers to their many questions, easing their worries via discussions about caregiving tips and available support resources. Led by a licensed clinical social worker, the Alzheimer's Caregiver Support Group gives caregivers an opportunity to discuss and learn how to care for their loved one with Alzheimer's.
  • Caregiver Education – Workshops, forums and lectures are planned each month to build caregiving skills and engage caregivers in conversations about care planning, legal and financial issues, innovative research for Alzheimer’s and other debilitating and chronic diseases.
  • Recreational Therapy – Arts and craft activities and social events are offered weekly under the direction of a licensed recreational therapist.
  • Wellness – Classes for Gentle Yoga, Tai Chi and Deep Relaxation Breathing are offered to help relieve caregiver stress and encourage self care. Caregivers who wish to enhance their cognitive abilities also have access to Cognifit, an on-line subscription brain fitness program.
