Project Details

Peconic Bay Medical Center's Caregiver Program is dedicated to the support and well being of caregivers who provide for a loved one confronted with a illness. Every caregiver's journey is unique and requires individual and personalized support. Caregiving can be an isolating and stressful experience. The goal of this program is to give caregivers the opportunity to be connected and supported both while their loved one is in the hospital and continuing once they return home. The Caregiver Program is a place for support, information and resources for all caregivers. The program offers help from social workers and specially trained volunteer Caregiver Coaches. The hospital based program is available to caregivers Monday thru Friday. Caregivers are offered additional support through weekly outreach calls from Caregiver Coaches. This effort provides caregivers with ongoing support and resources throughout their caregiving journey.
