Education is available regarding specific illnesses, stress management, financial assistance, and other caregiver issues.
Time away from your loved one, whether it’s for an hour or a weekend, can be what it takes to regain perspective, sanity, and emotional well-being. Information about providers of respite services either in your own home or institutional care is available as well as possible funding sources to off set any costs involved.
A friendly voice or empathetic ear is available for one-on-one consultations. Assistance to finding or starting a support group for caregivers to share concerns and offer advice is available.
