Things You Might Not Know: Caregiver Support

While you may know that JFCS has the Klein Older Adult division in our agency, You May Not Know that we also offer Caregiver Support. Caregiver Support can offer a practical and emotional hand to give you a lift when you find yourself taking care of the parents (or other older family member) that once took care of you. Its a situation that can easily become overwhelming, but with JFCS you’re not alone! Our services include:

  • Education on the aging process
  • Stress management
  • Problem solving and support groups
  • Teaching you to take care of yourself
  • Strategies for setting boundaries
  • Consultation on safety and long-term care
  • Workplace seminars and fairs

JFCS offers Caregiver Support groups (among many others) held on a monthly basis at a variety of locations. To find a support group near you, please visit our website, or call us at (502) 452-6341.

Caregiver Support services are funded in part by KIPDA Area Agency on Aging through the Older Americans Act and the Cabinet for Health Services.
