WA County Family Caregiver

Do you ever feel overwhelming and vulnerable taking care of someone? Have you ever found it hard to find the balance between being a family caregiver and having your own personal life? You are not alone. According to the National Family Caregiver Association, there are over 54 million family caregivers in the United States. Caregiving involves many challenges, which is why we are here to support you. If you are an unpaid family caregiver who is caring for someone over the age of 60 or an adult of any age caring for someone with Alzheimer's or a grandparent/relative age 55 and older that is caring for a child under the age of 18, you may find this program helpful as you are taking care of a loved one while seeking to maintaining a quality of life. Services We Provide:

  • Linguistically and culturally specific consultation on caregiving options
  • Individual counseling for family caregivers to manage daily stress
  • Information on resources and support services available within the communities
