Our office offers the Family Learning Center® as a free online resource you can turn to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for support with all types of caregiving questions. It’s a simple process: all you need to do to get started is click here to sign up. You’ll gain access to dozens of interactive courses, videos, and other materials to give you the confidence and tools to handle challenges that may come your way as a family caregiver.

We are also actively involved with the Jean Griswold Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) private foundation established in 2010, which provides grants to select community programs that help people age in place. In 2019, we presented a $500 grant to Bay Area Meals on Wheels to further its meal delivery program, which also provides companionship to residents in need – one of the most important aspects of the organization’s services. Bay Area Meals on Wheels serves approximately 17,000 hot meals and 6,000 sack lunches to homebound individuals throughout the Galveston Bay Area.
