The role of caregiver to an ill or disabled older family member can arise unexpectedly. The healthcare system is complicated, costly, and overwhelming. JASA’s Caregiver Respite Program offers caregivers a roadmap, support, and resources.
JASA’s holistic approach addresses the needs of nearly 500 caregivers. Our program provides in-home care by a trained aide as well as out-of-the-home socialization at a day center. This support allows caregivers to attend to their own needs, such as personal errands or visiting their own doctor. JASA support groups provide meaningful connection to individuals dealing with similar situations and stresses.
JASA also connects caregivers to referrals for other services that enhance their ability to manage caregiving tasks, including home care, case management, home-delivered meals, and senior center.
For more information about these and other services available, please call JASA's help center at 212.273.5272.
