A Caregiver can be someone caring for a spouse or parent, an extended family member, or even a friend or neighbor.
Do you provide someone help with:
- Medical Needs: Transportation to appointments, acquiring medical supplies,
communicating with health-care professionals, or monitoring a medical condition?
- Personal Care: Getting in and out of bed or chairs, dressing, or bathing?
- Life Assistance: Homework, shopping, housework, meal preparation, or managing finances?
If you answered “yes”, you may be a caregiver.
Caregiving is one of the hardest jobs in the world. Over any amount of time, the demands of caregiving can be physically, mentally and emotionally exhausting. Caregiving can be lonely and isolating when Caregivers are so consumed by the duties of tightly organizing each day, that they are unable to nurture other relationships.
