LIBERTY, NY — Many people do not self-identify as caregivers. In the context of elder care, the term “Caregiver” typically refers to someone who provides things like meals, shopping, bathing, transportation to doctor’s appointments or the pharmacy, or just companionship and help with activities of daily living. It can be for a friend, relative, or neighbor who is aging with physical or cognitive limitations, or is disabled and needs social, physical or emotional support.
To better serve the needs of adult caregivers in Sullivan County, the Caregiver Resource Center (CRC) at Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County (CCESC) has released a short survey for caregivers to give insight to the kind of educational programs, workshops, and resources they need.
To fill out the survey, interested participants can find the online version at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3GKR7DL, CCESC’s social media pages, or individuals can request a printed copy from the CRC office. This short survey takes a few minutes to complete, and the staff of the Caregiver Resource Center appreciates any feedback given. Those with related questions can email email@example.com or call 845-292-6180 ext. 122.
The Caregiver Resource Center is a co-partnered program between Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County and Office for the Aging of Sullivan County, and is supported by a grant from the NYS Office for the Aging’s Caregiver Program.
