                                                                                            CARING FOR THE CAREGIVER
Taking care of a loved one with dementia is demanding — and it's normal to need a break. Respite care is something that provides caregivers a temporary rest from caregiving, while the person living with Alzheimer's continues to receive care in a safe environment. Using this service can support and strengthen your ability to be a caregiver.

1.  A chance to spend time with other friends and family members
2.  Time to take care of errands such as shopping, exercising, getting a haircut or going to the doctor
3.  An opportunity to do something for yourself, to relax and recharge

The Simone Foundation has generously provided funding to pay a trusted family friend or neighbor to care for your loved one so you can take a much needed break. We may be able to provide up to $1,000 to cover the costs of this care. Call us today for more information at: 602.528.0545.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers classes help caregivers take better care of themselves while caring for a relative or friend.  Whether you provide care for a spouse partner, parent, friend, or a child with special needs; at home or in a care facility; whether down the blodk or miles away, yours is an important role.  This course is for family caregivers like you!  This six-week class series gives you the confidence and support to better care for your loved one-and yourself.  The classes give you tools to help reduce stress, improve self-confidence, manage time, set goals and solve problems, better communicate your feelings, make tough decisions, locate helpful resources.   Caregivers will receive "The Caregiver Helpbook", which follows the curriculum and provides additional tools to address specific caregiver issues.  For more information or to register email This email address is being protected from spambots.
