Are You a Caregiver?

If you are helping someone to perform the usual activities of daily life, you are a caregiver.

If you are feeling lost or overwhelmed, we are here to help.

Caregiving for people as they age or after the diagnosis of a serious illness or disability often is performed by a family member, whether a member of someone's biological or chosen family.

Caring for someone with a form of dementia, such as Alzheimer's, or with a chronic illness, such as heart failure, can pose challenges to the caregiver. This may cause stress and anxiety. If you are a caregiver, you may even find that you are neglecting your own health, and becoming increasingly isolated.

You are not alone. 

Caregiver Support at Sunnyside Community Services has a dedicated team to help you with the unique challenges you face.

Caregiver Support works with people living in Queens, or whose family member in need of care lives in Queens. Our team also provides services in Brooklyn and Staten Island, including at SUNY Downstate Medical Center.

We offer the following services and supports:

  • Respite services, including in-home or social adult daycare
  • Long-term care planning to help you prepare for the road ahead
  • Applying for Medicaid and other benefits
  • Counseling with understanding professionals
  • Peer support groups
  • Educational workshops
  • Activities to promote self-care and wellness
  • And more

Care NYC is supported (in part) by a grant from the New York State Department of Health and the NYC Department for the Aging.

You can find some helpful resources here.
