Resources for Caregiving

***we are always looking for resources to share with you.  If you know of any that we might add to our lists, email us at resources@passings.us

Local Support

For all caregivers:  Contact Caregiver Action at https://caregiveraction.org/ or call 855 227-3640 to find resources near you.  Also contact Family Caregiver Alliance at https://www.caregiver.org/

For caregivers of elders (and elders themselves), the Area Agency on Aging (which could have a different name) is a governmental agency dedicated to supporting our elders.  They can provide guidance and references, and they often have caregiver support groups.  Visit this site to find the AAA nearest you:
