Caregiver Support

Our Caregiver program helps those who are taking care of family members as well as providing support for grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. We offer respite care, information and other help for caregivers. Arrangements can be made to give caregivers some time away so they can take care of their own needs or take care of errands for the client.

Parenting a Second Time Around (PASTA)

PASTA is an educational and support group for adults doing kinship care, such as grandparents raising grandchildren or an aunt raising a niece or nephew. Being a primary caregiver for grandchildren and/or other children can be both a blessing and a challenge. The expectations of providing care for children, especially when older, can be overwhelming and exhausting, PASTA provides an ideal opportunity for older caregivers to receive assuring, personal support specific to their circumstances.
