WIAAA’s Family Caregiver Support Program offers information, support, and resources to assist caregivers (spouse, adult child with a disability, other relative, friend or neighbor) with their concerns related to caregiving and helps caregivers find solutions to their caregiving dilemmas. Whether arranging for services, e.g. respite care, transportation, etc., or helping families understand their options for care, the Family Caregiver Support Program gives caregivers access to the information and services that can help them in the often rewarding, sometimes challenging, role of caregiver.

The program offers the following for caregivers:

 Information about available services
 Assistance in gaining access to services
 Individual counseling, support groups and training
 Respite care to help caregivers take a break from providing care
Supplemental services

For those wishing to connect with other caregivers in a supportive online community forum, WIAAA is pleased to offer the Caregiver Forum, powered by AgingCare.com. This is a nationwide group where you can ask questions, give answers, exchange messages and get support from other family caregivers who understand exactly what you’re going through.
