If you or someone you know is responsible for the care of a loved one, we want you to know that you have a friend at the Family Caregiver Support Center. We can give you the tools you need to manage your caregiving responsibilities while also caring for yourself.

The Family Caregiver Support Center provides families with professional guidance in preparing an individualized caregiving plan and getting you the support services you need. There is no charge for any service provided directly by the center, although donations are always welcome.

We offer help to any adult over 18 who is caring for a person over 60 or any adult over 60 who is the primary caregiver of a related child under 18.

Services offered through the Family Caregiver Support Center include:

  • Individual planning consultations with family caregivers;
  • A Caregiver Respite Voucher program offering limited care in the home or at a day-care center;
  • Education:
    • Powerful Tools for Caregivers: a six-week course teaching caregivers how to thrive in their caregiving responsibilities;
    • Passages in Caregiving: a seven-week support group to assist caregivers in coping with the challenges of family caregiving;
    • Individual classes on a variety of caregiving topics offered by PILLAR and by the Colorado Springs Senior Center.
    • Caregiver Pampering Day: an opportunity to refresh and renew family caregivers, held each year on the last Saturday in February;
    • Caregiver Coaching Program, providing new family caregivers with emotional support from a former family caregiver who has been specifically trained as a mentor.
