Glendale resident Barbara Covey is one of more than 60,000 grandparents in Arizona who are responsible for raising their grandchildren. Across the U.S., this number is estimated to be more than 2.6 million.
Raising grandchildren is nothing short of life altering for grandparents who have stepped up to the plate because of extenuating circumstances. Luckily for Ms. Covey and her family, they have help from Duet: Partners In Health & Aging’s grandparents raising grandchildren program.
Duet offers support for grandparents raising grandchildren through free-of-charge support groups, legal guidance and assistance, funds for extracurricular activities, information and guided assistance, educational workshops and outings.
