There are only four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregivers.

Tailored Care Self-Assessment

Are you a caregiver?  Are you feeling stressed or overwhelmed? 

Take this quick and easy caregiver self-assessment questionnaire and talk to a caring professional who can help you better understand and deal with the challenges you are facing in your role as caregiver.  The questionnaire uses the results to determine what kind of help the caregiver needs and creates a customized plan to reduce caregiver stress and burnout. 

Caregiver Specialists are available to coach family members and friends who are caring for an older adult.

Caregiver Respite Care

The purpose of respite care is to allow caregivers time to self-care while providing additional supports in the home.  AgeLinc can help connect families caring for seniors at home with needed respite and in-home services.  If you are a caregiver of someone with dementia living at home, ask AgeLinc if you qualify for additional respite hours through Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care grant funding.

Education

Looking for opportunities to connect and learn as a caregiver?  AgeLinc has annual, monthly and special education opportunities for both Caregivers of Seniors and Relative Caregivers of Children.  Attend our free annual conferences for Caregivers of Seniors and Relative Caregivers of Children or register for our free monthly Lunch-N-Learn caregiver education series. 
AgeLinc provides programming that can help reduce the stress of caregiving for people with dementia, as well as education on how to prepare financially and physically for aging comfortably at home.  See more details on our Education page.
