The Elderly Caregiver Support program provides advocacy, information on available services, assistance in completing applications and forms, and making referrals for a tribal elder and family members who serve as a caregiver for a tribal elder/parent or relative who is seeking home care and senior services. Other services include:
- Assessing what the current level of care and needs are in providing caregiver support services;
- Providing community resources that will connect the caregiver to available support services such as respite care and training for Native elderly caregivers;
- Hosting an annual Caregivers Workshop in Juneau; and
- Monthly Tlingit & Haida Elderly Caregiver Council meetings.
