Caregiver Support Programs

helping hand

Caregiver support programs assist informal caregivers—spouses, adult children, other family members, friends and neighbors in their efforts to care for older persons who need help with everyday tasks. The programs include services to assist the caregiver in their efforts through information and referral, counseling, training, support groups and short term respite to relieve the caregiver through in-home care or social or medical day care or overnight care in a facility.

To find programs and services in the guide supported by funding from Albany County Department for Aging, New York State Office for Aging and the Administration on Aging, look for the Sponsored by the Albany County Dept for Agingnext to the listing.
