Care NYC: Support for Caregivers

Are You a Caregiver?

More than 380,000 New Yorkers are living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. It often falls to a family member, such as a partner, child, or parent, to provide the care their loved one needs to remain at home. If you are helping a loved one to perform the usual activities of daily life, you are a caregiver.

Facing the challenges of providing care for a loved one, you may feel lost or overwhelmed.  You may experience stress and anxiety, neglect your own health and comfort, and become increasingly isolated.

You are not alone.

CARE NYC has a dedicated team of Social Workers available throughout The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island to help you with the unique challenges you face.  We can help you to enjoy the special rewards of spending time with your loved one while providing care.

CARE NYC also provides support to caregivers of older adults living with chronic illness.  And, for those caring for a minor as a grandparent, we can help you manage this tremendous responsibility.

Caregiver Support Specialists provide reliable information and access to services including:

  • Respite services - in home or adult day care
  • 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
  • Education and caregiver skills
  • Wellness activities
  • Cultural trips to take with your loved one
  • and more

Care NYC is supported (in part) by a grant from the New York State Department of Health. Additional support provided by the New York City Department for the Aging. Services available through the five boroughs, in partnership with Community Agency for Senior Citizens (CASC), Henry Street Settlement, Queens Community House, Riverdale Senior Services, SUNY Downstate, and Union Settlement.
