Through our Family Caregiver Support, Medicaid Alternative Care and Tailored Supports for Older Adults Programs, you can access community services, education and supplies designed to make your caregiving easier while respecting the independence and dignity of your loved one. Through personalized home visits, we work with you to identify and arrange services to help restore balance and support to your life while optimizing the care your loved one receives. Support is also available to Kinship Caregivers. We serve caregivers in Clark, Cowlitz, Klickitat, Skamania and Wahkiakum counties.
