A caregiver is an integral member of the care team for someone who is elderly or who has a chronic condition. Caregivers provide services many individuals need such as personal care, homemaking and errand running, medication management, as well as emotional support. Many individuals, if it were not for their caregiver, would find themselves in need of nursing home care or alternative care facilities.
The Aging and Disability Resource Center of Ozaukee County has a variety of outreach efforts to help support caregivers. These include educational classes, support groups, respite options, Caregiver Coalition, and informative websites.
If you are a caregiver, consider using some of the options available here or by contacting us at 262-284-8120 or 262-238-8120 to speak with one of our Information and Assistance Specialists.
