The Caregiver Connection is affiliated with the Aging and Disability Resource Center. Our members are local citizens and concerned area businesses that have a heart for the crucial role family caregivers perform in caring for others. Our volunteers want to help you care for yourself while you care for others through education, support and advocacy. We understand how rewarding yet stressful caregiving can be, but there is hope and we are here to help!
Caregiver Connection Website—Check the website regularly for a calendar of various supportive, fun and educational events; caregiver resources; food for thought; and more to help caregivers stay healthy and thrive!
Tours of Care Facilities—When the difficult decision must be made about moving from home to a care facility, we can accompany you in touring various facilities and can help you ask the right questions to get the information you need to make the right.
Journey Educational Program—In cooperation with our Caregiver Connection Partners and the ADRC, the Caregiver Connection is pleased to offer this free educational series on a number of topics aimed at helping caregivers in their journey. Watch for more information on dates and locations.
Powerful Tools for Caregivers—A six week community program in which caregivers meet once a week for about two hours with a trained leader to learn tools that help them better care for themselves – and ultimately their loved one. Held in the spring and fall, respite can be arranged.
Caregiver Coffees—Family Caregivers need time to relax, regroup and find caring compassionate people on a similar journey. Hosted by family caregivers, our coffee break time is supportive and informal. Come for a few minutes or the entire time to enjoy a cup of coffee and chat. Join us!
