Arizona Caregiver Coalition AmeriCorps
 
 
 
This program serves to improve the overall well-being and quality of life for Arizona’s Family Caregivers. To do this, we offer a variety of support services, with a particular focus on caregiver respite, including one-to-one assistance in accessing respite and support groups, education, and culturally relevant resources. Members will function as navigators to find supportive information and resources, refer caregivers to services, and assist caregivers in gathering important documents. Members will educate family caregivers about resources and programs that can help reduce stress and the burden of caregiving so that they may remain in good health and provide ongoing support for their loved one in their own home. Members will work to build awareness of the need for caregiver respite and being prepared for situations that may require emergency respite. Members will provide respite care directly to caregivers. Members will provide respite care directly to caregivers.
