Caregiver Support at Rosener House
The well-being of the families and friends who are the caregivers of Rosener House participants is of high importance to the Rosener House program. These unsung heroes provide countless hours of care to their loved ones, and are at risk for “care giver burnout”. This can have an adverse effect on the overall well-being of their partner.
Weekly Caregiver Support Group
Rosener House hosts a weekly caregiver support group under the auspices of the Alzheimer’s Association. This is a safe and non-judgmental environment for current caregivers to share their concerns, receive and give support to one another, and for education and exchange of “how to and what ifs”. Respite is offered while they are in the meeting, whether or not their loved one is enrolled at Rosener House.
Workshops and Speakers
There are occasional speakers to provide information on being a caregiver, managing dementia related behaviors, legal and medical concerns, and self-care for the caregivers.
Information and Referrals
The social worker at Rosener House offers one on one consultations in order to provide information for community resources for additional services including home care, placement options, and other specific resources requested by the caregivers.
According to the annual Rosener House Caregiver Satisfaction Survey, 94 % of our caregivers agreed that their quality of life has improved, and 100% are satisfied with the services and would recommend Rosener House to their friends./
