Caregiver Resource Centers Network


Description

The Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities (DSAAPD) supports eight Caregiver Resource Centers located throughout Delaware, available to all caregivers.

Caregiver Resource Centers serve as access points for information on a variety of caregiving topics. The centers are staffed on a part-time basis. Coordinators at each center understand the challenges that caregivers face. Caregiver Resource Centers provide information, assistance and support that can be helpful in a caregiver’s individual situation. They help caregivers navigate services systems, find solutions to individualized concerns, and make appropriate referrals. Many Caregiver Resource Centers also have support groups. In addition, each center has materials that can be reviewed on site or checked out for home use.

Contact a Caregiver Resource Center for information regarding the Savvy Caregiver program – a free knowledge and skills training for those who are caring for a loved one living with Alzheimer’s or dementia. The classes help guide caregivers toward the goal of creating a fulfilling life for their loved one while maintaining a healthy balance in their own life.

DSAAPD also has partnered with Delaware 's system of libraries to help caregivers get the information that they need. To locate your local library, visit the Delaware Libraries website or contact the Delaware Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC).
