Caregiver Support and Support Groups

COAAA hosts workshops and support groups to help caregivers.

The Department of Veterans Affairs offers the VA caregiver support program.

The Central Ohio Support Group Guide provides information about support groups offered throughout the region for a variety of conditions, needs and experiences.

Caregiver Toolbox 

A listing of our Caregiver Toolbox topics, videos, and handouts is located on the Caregiver Publications & Videos page.


Trualta is a personalized online site that offers information and training on topics that support family members caring for aging loved ones living at home. COAAA is partnering with Trualta to offer this resource at no cost to central Ohio caregivers in COAAA's eight-county area.

Caregiver Respite and Supplemental Services

COAAA provides funding to specific county agencies to deliver caregiver respite services. Respite is short-term help to alleviate caregiver stress and includes institutional respite, traditional respite, or overnight respite.

COAAA funding gives county partners flexibility in providing supplemental caregiver services such as emergency help with purchasing medications or assisting with caregiver travel.

The Central Ohio Respite Guide offers information and resources for planned or emergency temporary relief for caregivers.
