Starting Point – Macon County Health Department
This program offers caregiver services to informal caregivers caring for older adults, older caregivers caring for adult children with disabilities, and to grandparents/kinship caregivers. Caregivers are met with one- on-one to assess their needs and to link them to many community supports. Trainings on various topics are also provided throughout the month. A Caregiver Support Group is offered on the 4th Tuesday of every month at 10:00 AM, and it is open to any caregiver needing support without regard to the age or diagnosis. A Hope Grows support group takes place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 1:00 PM for grandparents raising grandchildren and other kinship caregivers.
