The Department on Aging specializes in helping caregivers explore and access resources for their family's situation. Caregivers might be a loved one with a spouse or parent age 60 or older, a senior caring for an adult disabled child, or kinship caregivers 55 or older.
The community services the Caregiver Support Program offers are:
Caregiver Support Group
Special workshops and a community conference
Unmet needs assistance
Many questions can be answered over the phone, or an appointment can be made to meet with a caregiver specialist at our office. Call 517-788-4364 for further information.
