Alamo Caregiver Empowerment
Does someone rely on you for care?
If they do, you may be a Caregiver
Caring for a relative or friend may be something you never expected to do. Regardless of your age, you are a Caregiver if you provide routine assistance to a loved one 60 years of age or older, who is frail, disabled or has a chronic illness.
The Area Agencies on Aging National Family Caregiver Support Program or what we affectionately call Alamo Caregiver Empowerment (ACE) exists through the Older Americans Act to serve unpaid, primary caregivers who care for a loved 60 years of age or older or a loved one any age with Alzheimer’s or other related Dementias.
