Caregiver/Care Receiver Support Groups

Caregiver/Care Receiver Support Groups

Provider: USC FAMILY CAREGIVER SUPPORT CENTER

The center, in partnership with AARP and 211 LA County, provides services for caregivers caring for adults age 55 with a chronic health condition or of any age with a brain-impairing condition diagnosed in adulthood (18). Services include caregiver/care receiver support groups and specialized information and referral for caregivers. Services are targeted to, but not restricted to the hispanic/latino community. There are no geographic restrictions.

The program Ayudando a Quien Ayuda, also known as Helping the Helper, matches caregivers with a resource navigator who will create a personalized plan to provide supportive services that may include additional information, assessment, individual consultations, respite, education, and training.

To be eligible for the program, caregivers must be providing care for a family member or close friend who is age 55 and older, or is of any age if living with a chronic brain injury that developed after the age of 18. This program determines a caregiver is someone who spends several hours a week or more helping with:

- daily activities including dressing, bathing, preparing meals, or cleaning
- running medical and personal errands
- assisting with medication management and other medical needs
Applicants for this program will need consent to their information being shared with program partner AARP. AARP's privacy policy is available at aarp.org/privacy
