Peer Caregiver Support Program

The Aging and Disability Resource Center of La Crosse County is excited to launch
The Peer Caregiver Support Program which will be facilitated by Causeway Caregivers of La Crosse.
This program is designed to connect “Volun-Peer Mentors” with caregivers of individuals diagnosed
with Alzheimer’s or other related dementia for caring support, socialization and knowledge of resources.

Volun-Peer Mentors have “Been there. Done that.” as former caregivers. They can provide encouragement, a listening ear, and may share a similar caregiving experience but recognize that everyone is different.  Support can be provided by phone, in person or electronic communication.

If you are interested in becoming a Volun-Peer Mentor, providing support and encouragement to current caregivers or are a current caregiver and interested in being matched with a Volun-Peer Mentor
or interested in knowing more about the program, call Causeway Caregivers at 608- 775-9999 or Click on this Brochure
