Del Oro Caregiver Resource Center – www.deloro.org
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.
