NARCOG Supports Caregivers
Family caregivers provide the majority of care for aging and disabled individuals. Almost 40 million individuals provide care in the United States alone with over 15 million of those providing care for an individual diagnosed with Alzheimers or another dementia. We understand the unique challenges faced by these caregivers. There are physical demands, emotional demands and financial demands related to caregiving.
November is designated as National Family Caregiver month. In recognition of all caregivers, NARCOG is offering a special program - Managing Holiday Stress on Tuesday, November 19th at 2pm at the NARCOG office. Caregivers will be treated to refreshments, door prizes and a special holiday craft in addition to hearing from guest speaker, Katie Gilliland with the Mental Health Association of Morgan County. A list of other local caregiver events sponsored by partner agencies are listed below.
