Caregiver Resource Center
We are here to help!
The Modern Maturity Center has a staffed Caregiver Resource Center. The center is a community access point for information on a variety of caregiver issues. The Caregiver Resource Center has support groups that meet monthly: two caregiver support groups for anyone caring for an elder relative, friend or neighbor (day and evening times available); an evening support group for anyone with Parkinson’s and their caregiver; and a daytime support group for grandparents or other blood relatives raising related grandchildren. The CRC also has a library of books and videos, as well as an assortment of pamphlets and brochures, about health problems, services, and other caregiver issues. The Caregiver Resource Center also provides monthly video trainings to assist caregivers. Special programs and speakers are scheduled throughout the year. Check the MMC Bulletin or call the Caregiver Resource Center for more information on these special programs.
