COVID-19 Caregiver Resources & Support
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lyngblomsten Community Services has suspended many of its caregiver services offered through 2nd Half with Lyngblomsten. This includes The Gathering (group respite), our in-home respite program, and our in-person support group meetings. These programs are suspended for the foreseeable future, and we will reinstate them as soon as conditions allow.
Our staff continue to provide support and resources to caregivers remotely, including via email and over the phone.
If you are a caregiver who needs support—whether you've used our services before or not—feel free to connect with us. We're here to help.
Email email@example.com (include your name and phone number) and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
Below are caregiver resources being offered through 2nd Half with Lyngblomsten during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We continue to provide our Resource & Referral Program and REACH (Resources for Alzheimer's Caregiver Health). Both programs are conducted over the phone and via email. Visit their program pages for more information or contact us at 651.632.5320 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are sending daily emails to caregivers who are caring for persons with dementia. These emails contain resources and activity suggestions to use during this time of social isolation. If you would like to receive this email, please contact us at 651.632.5320.
