Caregivers often think of others and “givers” by nature. Caregivers will often not reach out when they need help or will refuse help. “What can I do to help you?” could likely be met with “Oh I am fine, thanks for thinking of me.” To support a caregiver, consider one or more of these ideas:
Personal Emergency Response System
Are you in the market for a personal emergency response system for yourself or a family member? There are many to choose from and we may be able to help. Call a case manager to discuss options and get your information packet. Packet includes questions to ask service providers.

The Verona Caregiver support group is a fantastic group of people who support each other in all stages of caregiving and meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at 10:00. Club 108 is available as respite for your loved one while you attend if needed.
If you know a caregiver and have some time to spare, ask them if they need a break. Provide an afternoon of respite. Wash the windows.
Anything you can do to help the caregiver will be appreciated more than you will know. Many caregivers won’t ask for help, so by reaching out to them would be so, so helpful.
If you have any questions, please call Becky Losby at 845-7471.
