 Better care starts with self care.

Are you a family member, friend, or neighbor that helps someone with thing like bathing, dressing, errands, taking medication, or event getting to appointments?


If you help at all, YOU are a caregiver!

We use TCARE (TAILORED CAREGIVER ASSESSMENT AND REFERRAL) a caregiver assessment tool that focuses on the needs of the family caregiver.  Through a series of questions, we can find those areas of stress that can lead to caregiver burnout.  An individualized care plan is then created to help the family caregiver manage their role and identify as a caregiver.  Our staff will help you get connected to services such as support troups, counseling, caregiver support and education, financial assistance, benefits counseling, and respite to reduce those stressors.

Use the following screening tool to get the process started or call Nicole Durgan at (518) 565-4620:
