Services

Del Oro Caregiver Resource Center is a private nonprofit agency dedicated to improving the wellbeing of family caregivers throughout their journey.  We offer services to family caregivers of adults with chronic and disabling conditions or diseases. With a team of highly-qualified, professional staff, Del Oro helps families through a full range of programs and services.

To be eligible for services, a client must be caring for an adult with a cognitive impairing condition that occurred after the age of 18 (for example: dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s disease) or caring for someone 60 and over regardless of diagnosis and requiring assistance with two or more activities of daily living.  Services are for residents of our 13-County service area—Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, Colusa, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Sierra, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties.

All services come at no cost to the family caregiver.

For additional information about any of our services, contact us by email at crc@deloro.org, or call us at (916) 728-9333 or (800) 635-0220.

Family Consultation/Case Management Services

 

Our professional staff works with families and caregivers to provide support, alleviate stress, examine options and enable them to make decisions relating to the care of adults.

Respite Care

 

We can fund respite services to relieve caregivers of the stresses of constant care. Respite is designed to provide care to a loved one for a brief period of time so the caregiver has the opportunity for relief and rest. This service may be provided in the individual’s home, or in an out-of-home setting such as a day care center or assisted living facility. Del Oro contracts with select, professional agencies/facilities to provide this service.

 

Short-Term Counseling

 

Del Oro offers up to six (6) one-hour individual counseling sessions to caregivers seeking emotional support, skill development and helpful strategies to better cope with their caregiving situation.

 

Legal/Financial Consultation

 

Consultation provided by an attorney to address the various legal and financial issues related to caring for an adult. This may include planning for eligibility for public assistance programs, understanding Advance Healthcare Directives and Powers of Attorney. 

 

Education and Training

 

Del Oro provides education and training on a variety of issues related to caregiving. We cover practical, hands-on training in subjects related to research, disease specific information, stress reduction, self-care, and other relevant caregiving issues.
