Caregivers are the family and friends who voluntarily take care of older persons in our community.
Regularly offered classes include:
Caregiver Corner Newsletter: Caregiver Corner is a caregiver focused newsletter that provides information, tips, and practical advice for people who are concerned about the health, safety, or well being of an older person.
Support Groups: We offer Caregiver Chat groups that are dedicated to supporting you as a caregiver of an older friend or relative.
Other support groups that could be helpful to caregivers are offered in various Broome County locations. Click here for a list of these support groups.
Caregiver Resource Center: Materials include DVDs, books, and a variety of free pamphlets about homecare, stress and other caregiver issues. To utilize the Resource Center, call the Information and Assistance Line at 607.778.2411
