About The Caregiver Support Center
As the first medical center in New York City to offer families a Caregiver Support Center (CSC), we realize that the role of a caregiver can be demanding, lonely and stressful.
At the CSC, we offer family and friends of patients a private, safe,soothing and confidential environment to reflect, talk and hold family meetings.
So while your loved one is being cared for in the hospital, feel free to stop by the esc where our specially trained staff will ensure you find the warm, welcoming and supportive atmosphere that you deserve.
Come to the CSC to receive comfort and support, and use our quiet areas for privacy, relaxation and personal conversations.
We also offer access to:
• Telephones, computers and Wi-Fi
• Copy and fax machines
• Caregiver resource library
