ALBANY, GA (WALB) –   More than one hundred people who care for loved ones attended a seminar hosted by the SOWEGA Council on Aging's family caregiver program.   

With the aging of the nation, more people are being forced to care for elderly or sick family members. The council on aging wants to let them know help is available.

"Reduce the stress, financial," said Family Caregiver Program Coordinator Monica Posey. "And then there is also just so many things you need when you are caregiving. And we want to help them find them, and help them locate it. Make things easier for them."

The SOWEGA Council on Aging offers caregiving help in 14 Southwest Georgia counties.

 You can reach them at 229-432-1124.
