People caring for loved ones often aren't aware of the help that's available from their local Area Agency on Aging. Cathy Knight is the State Director of the Washington Association of Area Agencies on Aging and in this video, she walks you though the services you can use and how to find them. Help includes adult day services, caregiver support, case management, elder abuse prevention, health maintenance and promotion, information and assistance, legal support, nutrition, senior centers and transportation. When you don't know where to turn, your local Area Agency on Aging can make a difference with services you didn't know existed.

No matter where you are in your caregiving journey — starting to plan; taking care of a friend or family member be it in a home, a facility, or from a distance; or managing end-of-life caregiving responsibilities — having the right resources, information and connections can make all the difference.
