Supporting Family Caregivers

If we need help meeting the demands of caring for a family member or friend  there is available assistance at a local Area Agency on Aging (AAA).  They will provide practical caregiving information and help us locate the following services and resources:

  • Locate caregiver training
  • Take a needed break from caregiving (Respite)
  • Get assistance understanding the long-term care system
  • Make short and long-term plans that suit our unique situation
  • Participate in a local support group and gain access to the knowledge of experienced group members
  • Find helpful resources such as in-home meals or an emergency response devices

We can use the area map below to find the nearest provider to us. Also to the right, “Quick Tips” and “Resources” are available to better assist us with finding reliable information and supports.
