Caregiver Support Line
School of Social Work
Helping care for an older adult can be hard work, and can take an unseen toll on the caregiver. Staffed by Social Work faculty, professionals and supervised students working in gerontology, the hotline provides crisis counseling, resources and referrals to other services.
Hotline services are free, completely confidential and available 40 hours per week, including weekend and evening hours. Communication can be adopted for text and email contact, including follow-up and continued support through December 30.
