Spotlight on agency’s caregiver support program

November is National Family Caregiver Month.  Regardless of age, home is often where people choose to receive care. Families are often the primary source of help in the home.

The Mifflin Juniata Area Agency on Aging, Inc. would like to recognize and honor all family members, friends and neighbors that devote countless hours caring for their family or loved ones.

Caregiving for your loved ones is very rewarding but can also be a very difficult job.

The theme for 2016’s Family Caregivers Month is “Take Care to Give Care.”  We encourage and remind caregivers to pay attention to their own physical and mental wellness.

Mifflin-Juniata Area Agency on Aging, Inc can provide assistance to caregivers of individuals over the age of 60 meeting the program requirements.
