The role of caregiver to an ill or disabled family member or other individuals can arise unexpectedly. The healthcare system is complicated, costly, and overwhelming. JASA’s Caregiver Support Program offers caregivers a roadmap, support, and resources.
JASA’s holistic approach addresses the needs of nearly 500 caregivers. Our program provides respite, including in-home care by a trained aide as well as out-of-the-home socialization at a day center. This support allows caregivers to attend to their own needs, such as personal errands or visits to their own doctor. JASA support groups provide meaningful connection to individuals dealing with similar situations and stresses.
JASA also connects caregivers to referrals for other services that enhance their ability to manage caregiving tasks, including home care, case management, home-delivered meals, and older adult center.
For more information about these and other services available, please call JASA's help center at 212.273.5272.
