Grandparent/Older Relative Caregiver

The number of grandparents and other older relatives who are caring for children is significant and growing, in part due to the opioid crisis. Although caregivers’ lives are enhanced by the experience, providing full-time care to children can decrease caregivers’ abilities to address their own health and well-being needs.

Recognizing that these caregivers would benefit from improved coordination of resources intended to support them, as well as better dissemination of information about those resources will assist Older Family Caregivers to meet their caregiving role.

Elderbridge will identify, promote, coordinate, and disseminate to the public information, resources, and the best practices available to help grandparents and other older relatives both meet the needs of the children in their care; and maintain their own physical and mental health and emotional well-being.
