Annual Caregiver Resource Fair
Each spring, Alamance ElderCare hosts a Caregiver Resource which brings together various organizations and agencies that provide services to older adults. The fair is a great opportunity to speak with representatives from each agency and learn how these community resources can help you and the person you care for.
Respite allows the primary caregiver time away from home by providing care for their loved one. It is useful for family emergencies, planned circumstances, relief from the daily responsibility and stress of caring for an older adult. Respite can be in-home care or adult day services.
NOTE: In order to be eligible for assistance with respite, the older individual must need hands-on assistance, supervision or cueing for at least two of the following everyday activities: eating, dressing, bathing, toileting, bowel and bladder control, transfers (getting in out of bed or chairs) and communication.
For more information about the Family Caregiver Support Program and how our staff can assist you, please call Alamance ElderCare.
You are a caregiver if you:
Assist with personal care to help a loved one bathe, dress, eat, use the toilet and move about.
Help with errands, shopping, budgeting, medical appointments, home repairs and transportation.
Provide other help to a loved one as they age.
