Caregiver Support

Take care of yourself with counseling and connections to caregiver resources

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.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Take this 15-minute online self-assessment. The TCARE Caregiver Assessment can identify the symptoms of impending caregiver burnout and find solutions before burnout becomes a crisis.

With its custom-tailored plan of care that offers fresh perspective and services unique to each situation, TCARE® is statistically proven to prevent burnout.

Currently 84 percent of caregivers nationwide report lower levels of stress and depression in as few as six months after a TCARE® intervention.
