Caregiver Support

At the Adult Care Center we support both our participants and their caregivers.

Our staff works closely with caregivers and regularly advises them of any perceived changes or developments in the behavior or health of their loved one. They also give guidance for home care, as appropriate, and recommend reading materials, videos, and other resources.
