Keep it Simple. How Important is It? Breathe!
Reach Out and Call Someone
Larimer County Office on Aging (LCOA)
For all caregiver needs, the LCOA is the very first call to make. In the unlikely event that they can’t help you directly, they will know who can. They offer caregiver support through education, classes, respite grants, support groups and care consultations. For help in balancing self-care and caregiving they offer the class Powerful Tools for Caregivers. It is offered at various times and places in the community. Call the LCOA to register and get the help you need. Don’t be the caregiver who says “I didn’t know about that program and I wish I had.”
