Human Services Announces New Help Line for Caregivers of Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
Caregivers Can Call 833-NJ-ADULT (833-652-3858) Daily from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
(TRENTON) – Human Services Commissioner Sarah Adelman today announced a new help line available to support caregivers of adult individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
“Caring for a loved one with an intellectual or developmental disability is an incredible responsibility, and sometimes it presents challenges that can leave a caregiver feeling uncertain, frustrated or alone,” Commissioner Adelman said. “When an individual with intellectual and developmental disabilities is transitioning to adulthood, navigating those changes can sometimes feel like starting over. Caregivers of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities should know they are not alone. We are excited to offer a place for parents to call to speak with other parents who have navigated the transition to adulthood with their own children and have shared similar worries and pressures.”
