Nearly one out of every three people in the United States are caring for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member or friend. Many of them need resources to learn how to take care of their family members, as well as themselves, in order to avoid isolation, burnout or illness. Since 1996, Caregiver Assistance Network has been the resource for primary caregivers of aging parents to turn to for gaining valuable resource information in care of their loved ones.
Through the services we provide, caregivers can learn how to take care of themselves while caring for a family member, and gain the valuable resource information they need to care for their loved ones. Importantly, caregivers can learn how to maintain a loving relationship with their family member. If you have a question about care giving, please contact us.
To serve primary caregivers locally, Caregiver Assistance Network provides the following wide-range of services:
- Support Groups – monthly support groups for more than 340 caregivers throughout Greater Cincinnati where caretakers meet to gain the support they need in their care (Hamilton, Butler, Warren, Clermont & Clinton County). See calendar.
- Powerful Tools for Caregivers – an evidenced based six-week class teaching caregivers how to access resources, communicate effectively, manage emotions and reduce stress.
- Workshops – relevant workshops on issues faced by caregivers. See calendar.
- CAREline (513) 869-4483 – a helpline providing resource information, referrals and support.
Caregiver Assistance Network has trained volunteers facilitating Powerful Tools for Caregivers sessions and facilitating ongoing support group meetings for caregivers.
