Caregiver Support

 Caregiver Resource Center

This service is partially funded through the state Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities through the National Family Caregiver Support Program, Title III-E of the Older Americans Act, but is available to caregivers with loved ones across the lifespan. Stop in the Caregiver Resource Center in either New Castle or Georgetown to talk to a Case Manager and browse the pamphlets and books available for you as a caregiver, or call 302-221-2076 (NC) or 302-253-1129 (Georgetown) to connect with our knowledgeable staff.

 Caregiver Education and Support

Our goal is to provide resources and practical tools and tips, as well as information on how caregivers can take care of themselves. Easterseals offers many ways to help caregivers, such as:

  • Caregiver Support Groups held monthly so caregivers share their own, and learn from others’, experiences in caregiving.
  • Free workshops on topics such as Fall Prevention, caring for a Loved One with Dementia, Financial Planning, and other subjects. Check our events page for current and upcoming events
  • Our Annual Caregiver Conference which brings together caregivers, professionals and providers to learn about caregiving issues and share solutions and ideas. This free conference is co-sponsored by the Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities and offers an opportunity for learning, networking and sharing.
  • Virtual office hours where caregivers can connect with our case managers to learn about resources for their specific needs.
  • Resource webpage devoted to COVID-19 resources for people with disabilities and their caregivers.

 Resource & Technology Demonstration Center

Since Easterseals does not sell any devices, nor receive commissions from manufacturers, you can rest assured that staff will help you find the right products for your situation.  And since most assistive technology is not funded through insurance, our Case Managers will search for funding options which may be available. Drop in the Resource and Technology Demonstration Center during regular business hours, call 302-221-2076 or 302-253-1129 to talk with one of our Case Managers, or email us at resources@esdel.org.

 FYI: Finance Your Independence

In collaboration with the state Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, Easterseals has partnerships with lending institutions which can help finance assistive technology with lower interest loans. Whether you are looking for an adapted van to transport your child who uses a wheelchair, modifications to your home so your mother can move in with you, hearing aids for your spouse, or an adapted computer for your home business, the Finance Your Independence (FYI) Program may be the answer. Our Case Manager will help you through the process and answer all your questions. For more information, call 302-221-2076 or email resources@esdel.org.
