Caregiver Programs & Resources

The University of Louisville Trager Institute recognizes that caregivers are critical to creating strong support systems for older adults. We offer three programs to ensure caregiver needs are addressed as part of a holistic approach to improving the lives of older adults. All of our programs provide a space for caregivers of older adults to build supportive relationships with other caregivers and learn about caregiving resources in our community. These programs have some eligibility requirements based on where you live and if you are a current or retired UofL/ULP staff or faculty member.
