Caregiver Resource Center
at Friendship Cottage
The Caregiver Resource Center offers a meeting place, lounge, library, and support services for caregivers. The Family Caregiver Resource program offers information, assistance, support, appropriate referrals, and sometimes just a friendly ear, to anyone who is providing unpaid assistance to a senior.
Caregiver Support Group
The monthly Caregivers Support Group meets the first Friday of each month from 1 to 2:30 p.m. At that meeting, there is typically a presentation on topics of interest to caregivers. Newcomers are welcome to attend.
The Maine Alzheimer's Association offers Savvy Caregiver Training at Friendship Cottage from time to time. Savvy Caregiver Training provides instruction for successful care giving of those with memory loss. The trainings are usually held on Wednesday afternoons from 2:30 - 4:30 p.m. Pre-registration is required. For more information, contact Friendship Cottage at 207-374-5612.
