Administration Building lunch room at 201 Bowean St.

Caregiving Support Program:
A caregiver is anyone who provides assistance to another person so that person can maintain an independent lifestyle. Family
members and other informal caregivers are the backbone long-term care system. Caregiving isn't a job or a duty. It is doing what is
right for a loved one. Caregiving is an unspoken promise that so many of us make in our relationships, to be there for our loved ones
when they need us. Unfortunately, few people have the time, resources or ability to care for their aging or disabled loved one without
any help. It is important as a caregiver to know your limits, take care of yourself, know your resources in the community, and
understand the wants and needs of the person needing care.
Caregivers will be given information to assist in accessing services in the following areas:
- Educational Sessions with CHR's and PHN's
- Support Groups
- Respite Care
- Supplemental Services
- Supportive Services Include referrals to area agencies for needed assistance such as commodities, utilities assistance, social
security issues, emergency response system and others. Our goal is to interact with and assist elders on a personal and daily basis
or as needed.
Additional resources come from participants and community donations. No eligible participant will be denied service regardless of
whether he/she contributes. All donations will be used solely for the purpose of expanding services in the Title VI Program.
