The Teller Senior Coalition provides respite services for caregivers who are caring for a family member age 60 or older. Individual counseling and help with care-giving relief is available for the primary caregiver. If care-giving is becoming overwhelming or a challenge for you, or if you know a caregiver who needs a little time out from giving care, call the TSC office at (719) 687-3330 and ask about our Respite program.
We have local volunteers that improve home safety by making minor repairs or by installing safety devices, such as shower grab-bars.
