For Daughters, Sons, Spouses, and All Who Assist an Aging or Chronically Ill Family Member
Local community support is essential for family members who help care for a loved one due to aging, chronic illness, or differences in ability. It can be challenging to find resources specific to the physical, emotional, workplace, and financial needs of family caregivers in the community where we live.
A free Caregiving Community Guide has been specially customized for family caregivers in 10+ North Texas counties by CareGiver Transitions. Each county-specific resource list includes "Local, Time-Saving, Educational, Hopeful, and Problem Solving" information, inspiration, and tips.
Funded by the North Central Texas Area Agency on Aging, CareGiver Transitions delivered its inaugural 2019 Caregiving Navigation program, which included information, insights, and resources specific to the challenges of family caregivers. As part of our mission to connect with under-served and rural communities, CareGiver Transitions covered over 1,200 miles throughout North Central Texas from June through August 2019.
Daughters, sons, spouses, and parents who care for a loved one with critical care needs rated the 2019 Caregiving Navigation program 4.78 out of 5 (with 5 being the highest) overall. Our content and resource materials were rated 4.98 out of 5.
Based on direct input from family caregivers, health care professionals, senior care advocates and others, each county-specific resource guide has been further developed since its initial distribution to program participants.
