Family Caregiver Support Program
Rosalyn Carter said it best: “There are only four kinds of people in the world – those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregivers”.
The Family Caregiver Support Program provides information about available services, assistance in gaining access to services, individual counseling, support group and caregiver training, respite care, and supplemental services.
Are You a Family Caregiver?
- Do you care for a person age 60 or older at home?
- Does the care you provide help that person remain at home instead of moving into a nursing home?
- Are you a grandparent who has taken on the responsibility of raising grandchildren?
- Are you juggling caregiving with employment, family, and other responsibilities?
If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, then you are a caregiver and we may be able to help. For more information on any of the programs offered through the Albemarle Commission’s Area Agency on Aging please call today!
The North Carolina Division of Aging envisions a future in which families enter into caregiving with the knowledge and assurance that they can call upon the business, faith and health and human service communities to assist with information, counseling, problem solving, respite, and formal services when needed. Families are respected as the decision-makers and have access to tools to aid their problem solving. The contribution of family caregiving is acknowledged and supported through enlightened public policies. The role of the family remains strong regardless of the care setting or arrangement.
