Caregiver Resources & Support
Are you or someone you know supporting a spouse, partner, parent, friend, or neighbor with memory loss or a chronic condition and you’re looking for help in your caregiving role?
2nd Half with Lyngblomsten is here to help you navigate your caregiving journey.
Caring for an older adult comes in all shapes and sizes, from dropping off a bag of groceries to providing transportation to a doctor’s appointment. If you’re providing any type of support, you’re a caregiver—a role that has its joys and challenges.
2nd Half with Lyngblomsten’s Caregiver Services team is here to help you on your caregiving journey. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our staff are providing support and resources remotely: via email, on the phone, and through online meetings.
We have an expertise working with individuals who have memory loss and their care partners, although any caregiver supporting an older adult is welcome and encouraged to connect with us.
See the list of resources below for ways we can support you.

2nd Half with Lyngblomsten caregiver resources include:
Our staff have many years’ experience supporting caregivers, so they can provide you with quality educational materials (including online classes) and information about local resources (including home care services, memory care facilities, day respite programs, and senior housing and transportation), as well as offer strategies for support and self-care. All this is to assist you in your caregiving role.
Contact us at 651.632.5320 or caregiving@lyngblomstenorg to sign up for the weekly email or learn about educational and community resources.
Our staff are providing caregiver-coaching support to individuals who are providing care to an adult experiencing any form of dementia. Our coaching is done through Resources for Enhancing Alzheimer's Caregiver Health (REACH), which is a proven approach used by trained caregiver consultants to support family members and others who are caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. The goals are (1) to teach caregivers how to reduce stress, solve problems, and manage difficult behaviors the person with memory loss may display and (2) help caregivers feel confident in the care they provide and improve their ability to cope.
For more information, contact us at 651.632.5320 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are offering online Memory Loss Caregiver Support Groups. The meetings are hosted using Zoom (a video conference tool); however, individuals may participate by telephone. New members welcome! Support group dates/times are the following:
- 2nd Tuesday each month at 10:30 AM
- 3rd Thursday each month at 10:30 AM
- 4th Tuesday each month at 10:30 AM
To sign up and receive the Zoom link to participate, contact us at 651.632.5320 or email@example.com.
The Gathering is a group respite program that provides four hours of brain-stimulating activities and social engagement to adults experiencing early- to mid-stage memory loss, allowing their family members and/or friends to take a much-needed break from caregiving. The program is led by Lyngblomsten staff with support from a team of volunteers who are specially trained to understand the distinctive needs of people experiencing memory loss.
For information and registration, contact us at 651.632.5320 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
