The holidays offer special challenges for caregivers. We often try to plan for special events or visits with family but don’t know where to look for additional support in caring for our loved one.
Today’s Caregiver offers a wonderful resource–a national caregiver support group directory. This ezine also offers other wonderful resources for caregivers. Simply click on the link above, and you will be taken to a directory for your state. The directory also offers you the opportunity to add support groups in your area.
In our area of Grand Rapids, Michigan, we were apply to apply for respite vouchers through our local Area Agency on Aging through the adult day service where my mother was enrolled. If you’re in need of additional services, begin by calling your local Area Agency on Aging or checking online.
