The Office for the Aging is the new home to the Rockland County Caregiver Resource Center.  We are dedicated to helping families coping with the physical, emotional, and financial responsibilities of caregiving. The Caregiver Resource Center will provide caregivers with information, assistance, counseling, support groups, and training, as well as initiatives including specialized training curricula for caregivers of adults with developmental disabilities, minority populations, and caregivers of grandchildren.
