FAMILY CAREGIVER CENTER

The Family Caregiver Center provides support and services to caregivers of individuals age 60 or over or an individual of any age who has dementia or a related disorder. The goal of the program is to reduce caregiver stress and to support the individual’s ability to remain in the community with loved ones rather than be institutionalized. Caregivers are referred to the program through our Aging & Disability Resource Center. The referrals can come from professionals, caregivers, friends or relatives.

What services can I receive from the

Family Caregiver Center?

When an individual is referred to the Family

Caregiver Center, they are contacted by a

Family Caregiver Specialist who completes a

comprehensive assessment. The Specialist

provides options counseling to the caregiver

that includes information about community

resources and services. Options counseling

supports the caregiver with the knowledge they

need to better navigate the social service and

healthcare systems. Improved ability to

navigate these systems decreases caregiver

stress and increases their ability to care for their

loved one in the community.

Are there eligibility requirements or

costs to participate?

There is no cost to speak to a Family Caregiver

Specialist for information and resources.
