Help for Caregivers
Information & Caregiver Resource Center (ICRC): Our Resource Consultants are experts in available area programs and services that support elders and caregivers. They can help you determine what help you need, how often you need it and how that help will be paid for. There are many grant programs and programs that now pay caregivers for caring for a loved one.
Elder Care Advice can come to you when you need help and information on programs and services at no charge.
Respite Services allow caregivers to take a much-needed break from their important work of caring. Many grants are available to fund ways for caregivers to "refresh and renew.' Make your wish, caregivers! FCHCC will help you make it come true!
In-Home Care helps elders stay in their homes longer and help caregivers have a break and some peace of mind while others provide care for their loved one. Read about all the services that fall under the category of In-Home Care.
Support Groups help caregivers remember they're not alone. Support groups also allow caregivers to exchange experiences and help one another as they care for a loved one.
The Alzheimer's Support Group is centered at FCHCC.
Other support groups exist in many communities. Contact ICRC to learn more about support groups near you.
