Caregiver Support

Care for the entire family.

Caring for an aging loved one can be very rewarding, but also difficult and isolating. It’s okay to take a break. You have to take care of yourself to be able to care for others. Midland Care is here to support you with a range of services to meet your needs and those of your loved one.

Respite and Adult Day services allow caregivers to leave the home for activities like doctor’s appointments, visiting friends, shopping and other personal errands, while knowing their loved one is safe. Overnight care is also available. Support groups can help caregivers reduce the isolation that often accompanies caregiving and learn from others.
