Caregiver Programs

 

WACOG’s Caregiver Program helps family caregivers with tools and supports for the unpaid but vital job of caring for a loved one. These programs are made possible through the National Family Caregiver Support Program (NFCSP), established under the 2000 reauthorization of the Older Americans Act. WACOG’s Caregiver programs include education and training, caregiver respite, caregiver support groups, and caregiver zones.

 

Caregiver Zones

WACOG’s Caregiver Zones contain print and digital resources for caregivers. All Caregiver Zones have pamphlets and books on various illnesses including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and different types of cancer. The Caregiver Zones also have resources on better eating, how to take care of a loved one who is ill, different life situations, and caregiver self-care. A computer is available to look up resources and watch videos on the subject of caregiving.
