Caregiver Support

What is a caregiver?

Simply put, a caregiver is someone who provides support and care to a person who is chronically ill , disabled, or is not able to care for themselves. You are the wife, husband, daughter-in-law, sister, brother, child, or friend who saw a family member in need of care, and without evening thinking, became their caregiver. Rosalynn Carter once said:

“There are only four kinds of people in the world:

  • Those who have been caregivers
  • Those who currently are caregivers
  • Those who will be caregivers
  • And those who will need caregivers”

How can we help?

We want to support you through your journey. Whether it’s your first call for information, specific need for a support group or information to assist you in your caregiver role – we want to help.
