Grandparent Caregivers

The Grandparent Caregivers program within the ADRC is open to grandparents or relative caregivers 55+ years of age who are caring for grandchildren under age 18, or who are caring for someone with a severe disability who is 19 - 59 years of age. The program provides:

  • Support Group Opportunities
  • The “Grand” Newsletter
  • Educational Information
  • Respite
  • Activities and Outings
  • Peer Support

ADRC's Grandparents Parenting their Grandchild group strives to provide a time of rest for the grandparent while giving the grandchild a wonderful experience through various activities and outings designed to educate and stimulate. Grandparents and their grandchildren will enjoy the same activities and outings. While staff accompanies the grandchildren, grandparents have time for an enjoyable experience with their peers. Contact the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Waukesha County (ADRC) at (262) 548-7848 for additional information.

The Waukesha Women’s Center provides a weekly support group that provides the grandparents a place where they can discuss daily issues facing them while taking on the challenge of raising their grandchildren. Contact the Women’s Center Family Support Project, Grandparents Support Group, at (262) 547-4600.

The GRAND (Grandparents/Relatives Raising and Nurturing Dependent Children) Resource Guide has been developed to help grandparents and relatives as they assume new roles and responsibilities. It is designed to provide vital information concerning issues such as childcare, legal concerns, finances, and parenting again. The guide provides information on local, state, and national resources as well as services available to these caregivers and the children they are raising.
