Review for Barrington Area Council on Aging, Inc., Barrington, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As the primary caregiver for my elderly Mother for the last 6 years of her life I often felt isolated even though I had a great support system. BACOA offered a caregiver class that was most informative - but the support of others in the same situation was the most helpful. Sharing our stories was very relieving and cathartic. We continue to meet even as many of us have lost our loved ones.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

increased self confidence in my care for my mother.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add a class on what to expect when people are near death.

Role:  Volunteer & Attended a caregiver class.
