We know that a supported and educated caregiver is less stressed and better able to care for a disabled loved one. A caregiver with the appropriate tools will be able to provide a higher quality of care, resulting in a healthier and happier life for the individual for whom they are caring. Our agency remains dedicated to preserving independence, respect and dignity for our participants, and the encouragement and support we provide for caregivers is a critical part of that process.
Services we offer include:
Individual or family consultations
Monthly Caregiver Support Group
Weekly caregiver coffee hour
Referrals to additional eldercare services
Caregiver Support Group
The Adult Day Center hosts a support group once a month on a Saturday. Our group has become a family of its own; welcoming in new members and welcoming back those whose loved one has passed on. We offer a variety of information, topics, and guest speakers. You are welcome to bring your loved one who will spend time with our activity staff. The group is open to all caregivers regardless if your loved one attends our program, and is open to non-Somerset County residents.
If you are interested or have any questions, please call, and ask for either Stacy or Diann at 908-725-0068.
Historically, the Caregiver Café is open on Friday's from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Stop by and meet other caregivers who are facing the same challenges as you.
This program is currently on hold due to COVID-19.
