November is National Family Caregiver Month.

This year’s theme is “Caregiving and,” emphasizing that caregivers have many other roles and responsibilities.

The Bluegrass Area Agency on Aging has a caregiver support program that can assist caregivers in several ways.

The program can provide respite or a break from the primary caregiver, help with purchasing supplies, caregiver training and more.

Studies show that support services can reduce caregiver stress, anxiety and depression enabling them to provide care longer.

If you or someone you know are a caregiver and need assistance, please call the Aging and Disability Resource Center at 859-266-1116 or email
