Our Caregiver Program Provides:

Information and Assistance:
Whether your loved one needs help at home, or you are looking for financial help, our staff help address the needs and concerns of caregivers and their families.

Help for caregivers is available via telephone or in-home consultation. A professional can provide one-on-one help to caregivers with difficult needs.

Education and Training
Caregiver workshops are available in Columbus and central Ohio, free of charge. Please call to find out if trainings are currently scheduled in your county or to make arrangements for caregiver workshops to your county. Our county Partners may offer other types of training and education sessions as well.

Caregiver Respite Services:

Short-term help to alleviate caregiver stress are also available. Caregiver help that encompasses services such as institutional respite, traditional respite, or overnight respite can be accessed through the county partners.

Supplemental Services:

These caregiver services allow flexibility to partners to meet diverse caregiver needs. Emergency help with purchasing medications, or assisting with caregiver travel are some examples.

Caregiver stress affects both emotional and mental health. Call and speak with our caregiver advocates, even if you aren't sure where to begin. Help for caregivers is available. Register for one of our caregiving classes to learn about how to help your aging parents while taking care of yourself. Join a caregiver support group, or decide to do something healthy for yourself.
