Welcome to Washoe Caregivers!

Caregivers

Welcome to WashoeCaregivers.org! We are excited you are here. This is a space for caregivers to seniors in Washoe County to find the resources they need and to be able to share information about being a caregiver.

This site was created by the Community Foundation of Western Nevada, in partnership with the University of Nevada, Reno’s Sanford Center for Aging and Savitt Medical Library. The idea for the site came from two community convenings that were held in 2016 with over 90 current and past family caregivers. These caregivers shared how difficult it can be to find resources in our region. We created this site to address this problem and to make finding the resources you need easier.

As our website grows, this blog will be a place individuals can go to read personal accounts and advice about caregiving. The blog will cover a variety of topics and will be written by caregivers for caregivers. This will also be where we post about events aimed at seniors and caregivers in the area. If you are interested in writing a blog post or would like to know more about the work we are doing in the community, please contact the Community Foundation at 775-333-5499.

  • I manage the Wandering Prevention Program in Washoe County and was introduced to your website on 11-20-17. I have already given out guidebooks and this web address to one Care Partner for one of my clients. This is a much needed resource and I will do my best to ensure the word gets out that this is in place.
    Thank you very much for caring enough to create this resource!
