Family Caregiver Support provides case management and support groups for persons responsible for the care of a loved one. A growing segment of our population is known as the “sandwich generation.” These individuals are responsible for teen/adult children and often grandchildren, as well as their own parents or other elderly family members while maintaining employment and planning for their own retirement.
Family Caregiver Support offers resources, planning and implementation of care and respite options, long term planning, support groups and guest speakers.
Home visits are made to assess the care receiver and home environment for disabled modifications.
Monthly monitoring is achieved through telephone/additional visits. Hospital visits are made as needed.
Family Caregiver Support also hosts a monthly support meeting from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. on the 2nd Monday of every month at the Pleasanton Senior Center 5353 Sunol Blvd., Pleasanton, CA. This group meets for discussion and to share stories, experiences and resources.
