The Caregiver Resource Center

Today’s issues surrounding the needs of older adults are complicated and the role of a caregiver can be an all consuming one.  Just as the person being cared for depends on the caregiver, the caregiver depends on others. At the Caregiver Resource Center, we are here to help.

The Caregiver Resource Center provides education, support, and training for you as you provide care for your loved one. You can use these services free-of-charge anytime you have a question pertaining to any caregiver issue.

Our trained staff will identify your needs and provide the resources and/or materials that will help you. We have computer access available for visitors to our center who would like to explore additional options through IRIS, our database that can access local and regional agencies and programs. Internet access is also available as a part of the Center’s resources.
