Caregiver Support Programs

Are you handling your aging mother's bills? Do you take your grandfather to the grocery store once a week? Do you take time off work to drive your spouse to doctors’ appointments? If so, you are a caregiver. While being a caregiver to a loved one can be rewarding, it can also be exhausting. Easterseals has many services and programs for individuals with a disability, special need, or aging condition, but you, their caregiver, need support as well.

Respite Services

Providing care to a loved one with a disability, special need or aging condition often leaves a caregiver feeling tired, stressed and overwhelmed. Caregivers occasionally need rest and relief – also known as respite! Respite is a break from caregiving, whether it occurs weekly or sporadically throughout the year, and it’s different for everyone.  For all caregivers, however, it allows a chance to take care of yourself.

Caregiver Education & Support

Throughout the year, Easterseals offers workshops, support groups, and other events for caregivers. The purpose is to provide resources and practical tools and tips, as well as information on how caregivers can take care of themselves.

Resource & Technology Demonstration Center

The Resource and Technology Demonstration Center has hundreds of pieces of assistive technology on display for visitors to see and learn about.  We do not sell any products from the Center but our knowledgeable staff can provide information about where and how to purchase devices.
