Taking care of a family member or friend in the community can be both emotionally and physically challenging. There are programs in Eastern Counties to help you.
Programs can be general in nature or specialized. There are programs available for when you are supporting someone living with Parkinson’s or dementia or if the person is in palliative care.
The types of programs that can provide you with support include learning more, emotional support, respite or practical help. Finding what you need on the web can be challenging. Starting with what you are looking for can narrow your search. For example, if you are caring for someone with Parkinson’s you could narrow your search by looking for Parkinson’s caregiver support versus just caregiver support.
We have linked to some of the programs in the area to the right – it is not exhaustive and may change over time, however, we hope it might be of assistance.
