WashoeCaregivers.org is a database of over 300 free and low-cost resources for family caregivers to seniors in Washoe County. This website 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 Washoe Caregivers Guidebook, written by local caregivers and experts, is an instructional manual on how to be a new caregiver. It covers information about self-care for the caregiver, legal and financial planning, home safety and modifications, techniques for communicating with health care professionals and more. You can also download other important documents, like the Durable Power of Attorney for Financial Matter, and the Caregiver Employee Toolkit.
