If you are a caregiver, call the ADRC - there may be respite opportunities!
The Family Caregiver Support Programs provide information and assistance to family members, neighbors and friends who care for adults 60 years old and older and persons with Alzheimer's disease or related disorder (regardless of age); grandparents and relative caregivers of children no older than 18 and relative caregivers of an adult child 18-59 with a disability.
You might be a caregiver if…
…you find yourself stopping by your parents on your way home from work to take out the trash, make a meal, or make sure they have taken their meds.
… you are driving your neighbor to the doctor or grocery store regularly.
…you are having to help your partner bathe, dress, or use the bathroom.
…you are a grandparent and are now raising your grandchildren in home.
