Trumbull Social Services is the primary hub for family caregiver information, support and referral. Staff provide caregivers with the information they need to make informed decisions and the ability to access services and resources available in the community.
We recognize that family caregivers tend to neglect their own well-being both physically and emotionally. Our department offers one-on-one support services as well as the opportunity to participate in a caregiver support group. There is no fee for services.
Our Caregiver Support Group meets twice a month.
It is an open group that caregivers can join at any time. Group sessions focus on helping individual caregivers as they care for themselves and their loved ones.
Services are available by Appointment Monday-Friday.
Please call (203) 452-5198 for information or to make an appointment.
Residents who would like to make a donation for caregiver support services, please make checks payable to Social Services. Donations can be mailed to: Director of Human Services, 23 Priscilla Place, Trumbull, CT 06611.
