One of the services the county aging unit offers is
a support system to family caregivers.
The services act as a mentor for people taking care
of their loved ones in need.
The aging unit just received 100-thousand dollars
in funding from the Helen Bader Foundation.
The foundation helps improve the quality of life for
thousands of people living in Wisconsin.
A representive from the aging unit says cuts in long
term care in the state's proposed budget makes the
recent grant more important than ever.
The money from the grant will help the care-giver
program last another two years.
