The Area Office on Aging of Northwestern Ohio is an excellent resource to alleviate the strain of being a part-time or full-time caregiver with their National Family Caregiver Support Program, a five-part system that includes providing information on AOoA services; assistance accessing the services; counseling, support groups, and training; respite care to relieve caregivers of their responsibilities temporarily; and supplemental services.
