Find resources to help you care for family members during the pandemic 

Caregiving on ordinary days can be a tangled mix of stress and reward. How do caregivers adapt during a crisis? DHS is continuing to provide tips on how to care for a loved one during a pandemic, as well as other helpful resources during any challenging period that you and your loved one may experience.  

Visiting restrictions at long-term care facilities can add to your relative’s loneliness and your feelings of guilt, but we can help you find high- and low-tech ways to build connections through closed doors. If you’ve decided to bring your parent or grandparent home to live with you, discover what you need in order to make your house safe and accessible. Plus, get the most out of telemedicine visits and learn about resources to help you cover the costs of care, especially if you’re suffering from a recent income reduction.  

  Throughout November, follow DHS regularly on Facebook and Twitter to receive timely updates on caregiving tools and tips. To request services, call 1-866-552-4464 or visit the DHS Division of Aging Services webpage at www.aging.ga.gov.
