What is the Elder Care Office?



The Elder Care Office at the University of Kentucky is here to support you and help you save time as you navigate your way through issues involved in caring for an elderly loved one.



Goals



The goals of UK Eldercare are to provide University Families with:



  • assistance in identifying current elder care needs

  • detailed and personal referrals to community services

  • a handbook on providing care to older family members

  • printed information relevant to needs, such as fact sheets

  • ongoing support to the employee, such as family counseling

  • seminars related to elder care issues


How We Can Help



Referrals: Need caregiving resources for your loved one? Let us do the 'leg' work for you. We can find resources almost anywhere in the United States.
