Caring for Caregivers

CARING for Caregivers provides respite to Atlantic County families who are caring for someone at home, sixty years of age or older, with memory impairment. Respite includes three hours of in-home care per week by a trained companion--enabling the caregiver to have some time for themselves. Companion care is a weekly friendly visit to spend time with the person experiencing memory impairment--assistance with personal care is not provided.

Caregiver Support & Eductional Services

Caregiver Support and Educational Services are offered monthly at the CARING Memory Resource Center. Information includes understanding the diseases that cause memory loss and their progression, resources available to caregivers, and tips for providing care to those experiencing memory loss. Opportunities for mutual support plus exchanging ideas and concerns are the basis for the support group.

Unique to CARING’s Caregiver Support and Educational Service, the person with memory loss may attend the CARING Memory Resource Center social daycare program while their caregiver participates--in a separate area--in the support and education group.

Unpaid caregivers of Atlantic County residents with memory loss who are sixty years of age and older are invited to participate. Please call Fred Meineke at (609) 485-0424 or email fmeineke@caringinc.org for more information.
