Caregiver Resource Center
Caregiver Resource Center (CRC) at Solutions for Care is a resource center that serves as a point of entry to a broad range of services and resources for caregivers and grandparents raising grandchildren. The CRC’s Caregiver Specialist links older persons, caregivers of older persons, grandparents or other non-parent older adult relative raising children (who are not more than age 18) and parents or other relatives raising children age 19-59 with a disability with community members that can provide support in these types of family situations. The Caregiver Specialist also collaborates with community partners to provide training and educational sessions to help Caregivers. At Solutions for Care the Caregiver Specialist hosts a monthly support group for caregivers to learn from each other as well as from scheduled speakers.
