We offer both group and individual counseling as well as educational resources for caregivers of an aging or elderly loved via Zoom and in person.
Weekly counseling sessions are available to help the caregiver handle their stress, better understand their role and options, and secure any assistance that maybe available.
Educational sessions are provided to community groups and businesses in a “lunch and learn” format, with topics such as dementia care, elder law, nutrition and long-term care planning. Groups are specialized to meet the needs of adult children and spouses of those with loved ones who have dementia. New groups will be forming in the new year.
SERVICES ARE FREE OF CHARGE. The program is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services through the New York State Office for the Aging and the Suffolk County Office for the Aging.
