Caring Together Lompoc is a campaign to help those caring for a senior loved one self-identify as a ‘caregiver’ so they can access local resources to better care for themselves and their loved ones.
With nearly 1 in 6 people in Lompoc acting as caregivers to a senior family member or friend, we understand your concern for caregiving as a growing challenge in health and medicine. Caring Together Lompoc is here to make sure caregivers are not alone and that you are not alone in supporting the needs of your patients who are caregivers.
Here’s what you can do to help your patients who are caregivers:
- Starting in early 2017, you can refer patients who are caregivers to the new Lompoc Valley FamilyCaregiver Support Network. They will receive hands-on support to find the community services and resources they need.
- Until then, you can still help your patients find resources online or by phone, by making the bi-lingual rack cards available at your office.
And here are more ways we can support you right now, in your efforts to support caregivers:
Thank you for supporting caregivers in our community!
