Grant allows Duet to increase caregiving support

Posted: Wednesday, July 13, 2016 10:00 am

Family members who care for aging loved ones in Maricopa County will have expanded tools, resources and support from Duet: Partners In Health & Aging, thanks to a three-year, $460,000 grant from Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust.

Grant highlights include a new caregiver-to-caregiver volunteer program to better serve isolated and overwhelmed caregivers; expansion of services for caregivers from diverse, underserved communities; new models of service to increase socialization and connectedness, such as book clubs and caregiver movie gatherings; and the ability to grow Duet’s current services by 20 percent annually, including support groups and personalized guidance.
