Are you a Caregiver?

Help is just a click away button Many people who care for a loved one, friend, or neighbor don’t think of themselves as caregivers, but if you routinely…

  • bring food to a friend or family member
  • listen to and reassure them
  • drive them to appointments
  • help with chores
  • pay their bills
  • run errands for them
  • help with yard work
  • fix their leaky faucets
  • organize their medications so they can be safe

… then you are a caregiver.

Caregivers experience a great deal of stress. Common stressors include:

  • Activity planning
  • Balancing work and family responsibilities and personal time
  • Communicating with health care and other professionals, family
  • Members and/or a loved one with dementia
  • Legal and financial concerns, including insurance coverage
  • Managing incontinence
  • Safety, including moving or lifting
  • Managing challenging behaviors
  • making end-of-life decisions
  • recruiting competent help
  • selecting a home care agency, assisted living facility, or nursing home
