For many of us, there comes a time when we must become the primary caretaker of an aging parent or spouse. This life-course change may be minor or become all-consuming. Caregivers need somewhere to turn. Since 1996, the Caregiver Assistance Network has been there. The Network provides a wide range of services, including:
- 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 below.
- Workshops – relevant workshops on issues faced by caregivers. See calendar above.
- CAREline – a helpline providing resource information 513-869-4483, referrals and support.
- White Mass – an annual recognition honoring caregivers of all faiths at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral downtown.
Through these services, 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.
We are always in need of volunteers.
There is also a growing need and your donation would allow us to expand our services to serve more caregivers and their loved ones.
