The Allen County Council on Aging, Inc., has received corporate sponsorships and caregiver donations to offer the valuable Caregiver's Support Program.

Caregiver's Program

Services include a Caregivers’ Resource Library, Educational and Informational programs and “Conversing with Caregivers” (support group meetings).

 

The Caregiver's Resource Library at 700 N. Main Street, Lima, is available to help you in your challenging and rewarding role as a caregiver. You may view videos and read other caregiver materials in our quiet, relaxing library area. For your convenience, you may also check out materials to be used at home. For more details, call Judy Jacomet at 419-228-5135.

 

“Conversing with Caregivers” groups are scheduled to meet regularly. These meetings offer support and encouragement from others in similar situations. Short educational topics may be provided followed by a discussion time. Come join us for refreshments and conversation. For scheduled times and locations, call Gerry Burton at 419-228-5135.

 

Educational and Informational programs are part of our “Conversing with Caregivers” series. We have hosted approximately 30 meetings each year. Area specialists including doctors, therapists, counselors, facility administrators and agency staff present valuable information.
