Caregivers won’t find a ‘wrong door’ when they knock on ours for help.
But no single organization can address the wide range of challenges that caregivers face, and often they don’t know where to turn.
That’s why we’ve pioneered an innovative program, an alliance of organizations called the Caregiver Training Coalition. It’s a team effort to better aid caregivers and their loved ones. We, along with dozens of local groups in social services and law enforcement, work to educate and inform each other about their areas of specific expertise and other caregiver-related issues.
Now when a caregiver comes to us with non-legal matters, not only can we quickly identify the problem – we can also refer them to the local group that will be able to help. And our partner organizations can refer their clients with legal problems to us.
This community network gives much-needed support to caregivers. Our role in the Coalition is to:
- refer clients to the best service providers for their needs
- train our partner organizations to recognize caregiver-specific legal issues
