Nearly 53 million people in America are providing care for aging parents or a loved one. Are you one of them?
Caregivers face a number of tasks, decisions and feelings–from dealing with your loved one’s special challenges and navigating a maze of resources, to balancing caregiving with other responsibilities and managing your own health.
CICOA’s CareAware caregiver support service is here for you. We offer one-on-one caregiver counseling for individuals of any income level, as well as group education and support.
