Caregiver Services

The Office for the Aging is 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 in conjunction with the Family Caregiver Support Program will provide caregivers with information, assistance, counseling, support groups, and training, as well as initiatives including specialized training for caregivers of adults with developmental disabilities and caregivers of grandchildren.

  • Educational symposiums

  • Caregiver Resource Center Library – Educational books, audio-visual materials, periodicals, and other literature on various caregiving topics are available for loan to caregivers.
  • Caregiver training and education
  • Linking caregivers with other community-based services

  • Respite programs – A variety of community-based programs, such as adult day care and in-home personal care, can be accessed through the Center to provide caregivers a break from their caregiving responsibilities.
  • Family caregiving
  • Support groups

Services are provided free of charge. Contact the Office for the Aging for more information at (845) 364-2110.

Tailored Caregiver Assessment and Referral (TCARE) Screen

Do you provide unpaid care to a family member, friend or neighbor who has an illness, disability, memory loss, injury or special need? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are a caregiver! Are you feeling overwhelmed, constantly worried, tired, sad, easily irritated and/or extremely stressed? You are not alone and there is support available. If you would like to learn more about resources, tools and supports available for caregivers, please answer the questions on the Tailored Caregiver Assessment and Referral (TCARE) Screen document to get connected to the right starting place.

Contributions are voluntary and confidential and are used to expand the services for which they are received. No one will be denied services because of an inability or unwillingness to contribute. 

Services are funded in part by the Administration for Community Living, New York State Office for the Aging and the Rockland County Office for the Aging.
