Lake Havasu City Council member Donna Brister-McCoy is trying to spread the word about a care giver assistant program administered by the Western Arizona Council of Government. She said the agency is returning some of funds provided because the program is under-utilized.
WACOG Caregiver Program
Brister-McCoy said the program offers various forms of aid to those who are providing in-home care.
“They will come into your home and cook, clean or sit with your loved one,” Brister-McCoy said. She said the support allows caregivers to take time to handle other necessary chores.
Information about the program and assistance eligibility can be pursued through a toll free phone number (800-782-1886).
