Caregiver Resources

Supporting a loved one with the challenges of aging in their home can be difficult. Area Agency on Aging is committed to helping caregivers find resources, navigate systems, and support older adults and their caregivers.

Adult Respite Services are day programs designed to support older adults facing aging challenges of memory loss, decreased independence, or need for intermittent support while caregivers are away.  For more information about these services, qualification for supportive funding, and eligibility criteria, contact our Information & Assistance social workers via email or call our program line at 269-373-5173.
