NAMS - Caregiver Support Project
AARP, Southwest PA 2-1-1 and NAMSC are partnering to provide a free Caregiver Support Program to unpaid (informal) family caregivers who provide care to adults 18+.
The Caregiver Support program links caregivers like you to a "caregiving coach" who is an expert in senior services. The caregiving coach would contact you to connect you with available caregiving resources and offer ways to reduce caregiver stress.
During the program, we hope to learn more about caregiving: what the balance of care for your loved one includes, what your primary concerns are, what types of services or resources you're seeking and any opportunities or gaps in resources that exist for you.
In addition to reducing caregiver stress by creating awareness of available caregiving resources, we seek to use the information to grow our statewide 2-1-1 database to be more responsive to caregiver needs.
