Stonehill is proud to partner with the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque and the Theisen Family in making the Caregiver Resource Center a reality.
The Caregiver Resource Center will be a place where non-professionals who care for loved ones with chronic illnesses can go for an array of resources — most of which will be at no cost — that support them in their caregiver journey, including:
The Caregiver Resource Center will be housed in the new Administrative/Outreach building currently under construction on the Stonehill campus in Dubuque, where caregivers will have access to and benefit from the expertise of the Stonehill staff and our experience serving people with chronic illnesses and their families. Until the new building is complete, services are being provided in a temporary office space on the Stonehill campus at 3485 Windsor Ave, Dubuque, IA 52001.
Jolene is a native of Dubuque and received her bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Clarke College. She has worked for non-profit organizations for the past 22 years. Most recently, she enjoyed working in Volunteer Management at UnityPoint Health-Finley Hospital. Throughout her years in healthcare, she became acutely aware of the growing need for caregiver support in the Dubuque community.
The Center was envisioned by Jim Theisen as a place where caregivers can go to feel supported and access resources they need. "No matter what caregivers need — even if it’s just a hug — this center will be there to provide it," said Jim. Jim has generously donated $1 million as a challenge grant to establish an endowment that will help sustain the Center for years to come. Gifts are still being accepted through the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque. Donations can also be made through Stonehill Communities to support the Center's operations.
