African American Caregiver Support Program
Caregiving can be rewarding and need not be defined by hardship, isolation, and negativity. Caregiving is deeply rooted in our culture. We don’t just provide services to our loved ones and those who are in need of care- we honor them. Our African American Caregiver Support Program provides assistance to some 200 Northeast Denver residents a year. One of the only programs of its kind in the United States, this program is provided at no charge to clients thanks to funding by the Denver Regional Council of Governments.
The 12-year-old program is designed to give geriatric caregivers a sense of control, relieve their frustration, and provide them with ways to maintain their physical, mental and spiritual health.
