Caregiver Support

Did you know that 75% of American adults will spend time caring for an elder relative? 

Caring for your senior loved one is both a privilege and an enormous responsibility. The Council on Aging can help you access the services you need, get the respite care you deserve, and improve the quality of life that you spend with your loved one.

Here for You and Your Loved One

The Council on Aging offers a wide array of resources for caregivers:
  • Respite care for your loved one in our Adult Day Club
  • Free caregiver support groups
  • Free caregiver training and monthly seminars on caregiving topics
  • Care managers who can help you make the right choices for your senior loved one, and manage any in-home assistance that is needed

The Kane Center has numerous Caregiver Training seminars held throughout the month covering a variety of helpful topics.

Caregiver Respite
Our Adult Day Program is an excellent option for respite care.  Our clients benefit from socialization, therapy and enhanced care, while their loved ones get a much-needed break. The Adult Day Program's support services are designed to give caregivers vital respite time, with the peace of mind of knowing that their loved ones are in the very best of hands.


Caregiver Support Groups
The Council on Aging of Martin County hosts two free monthly caregiver support groups, where you can share tips, resources and experiences with other caregivers, under the direction of a licensed clinical social worker with in-depth experience in elder care issues.

No RSVP is required, unless you will need free respite care for your senior loved one while you attend the session.  If so, please RSVP to Crystal Collier, Program Manager of Adult Day Health at 772-223-7843 or at [email protected].

Sessions are held the third Wednesday of each month:

3:30 - 5:00 p.m. NOTE NEW TIME
