A family caregiver is anyone who is an informal provider of in-home or community care for a relative or loved one. You may assist with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, eating, and medical tasks. You may run errands, take care of the house, take your loved one to appointments, or coordinate care. Most people, at some point in their lives, become caregivers. There are a variety of supports and services that may be of assistance to you. Putting the pieces together can be a daunting task. Our Aging and Disability Resource Center is a great place to start. We can help you gather information and assess needs, make plans and find support.
