Caregiver Resources

If you are helping care for a family member or friend, you are not alone!  More than 800,000 Washington State citizens provide care to an adult who needs help with care. Below are a variety of ways to find some information, resources, and people that can help.

Caregiver Support is a Phone Call Away

Talk to caring people for practical caregiving information and help finding local resources/services by calling your local Community Living Connections/Area Agency on Aging or Home and Community Services Office.

  • The Family Caregiver Support Program is a service available to unpaid caregivers of adults who need care.  Staff at local offices throughout Washington can give you practical information and advice and connect you to local resources/services that meet your needs. Services are free or low cost.
  • Two programs, MAC and TSOA, offers free services for unpaid family caregivers of adults (age 55 and older) who need care, or to individuals without unpaid caregivers. Contact your local Community Living Connections/Area Agency on Aging or Home and Community Services Offices.
