Caregiver Support and Resources
Caregivers’ Connections is DOROT’s educational and support network for caregivers, offered in partnership with hospitals, social services agencies, and healthcare professionals. Weekly support groups, workshops, and health-related classes give caregivers the opportunity to speak with experts, learn about resources, and meet other caregivers. These support groups and workshops are conducted over the telephone via conference call technology to accommodate busy schedules and eliminate the difficulty of traveling to a meeting site.
We understand the enormous responsibilities involved in caring for an aging loved one, and we are here to help you. A simple phone call will put you in touch with an attentive staff member who will:
- Help you figure out what your specific needs may be (both for your loved one and yourself), and prioritize those needs;
- Help you access additional resources;
- Register you for Caregivers’ Connections telephone-based support groups and workshops; and
- Provide caring support to help you make your role as caregiver a little easier.
