Caring for Loved Ones

Being a caregiver is an important and demanding role. A cargiver is anyone who provides help to another person in need, such as an ill spouse or partner, a disabled child, or an aging relative. The vast majority of caregivers are not professionals, but relatives and family members of the care recipient. Per Mayo Clinic report on stress management 80 percent of long-term care in the United States is provided by these informal caregivers, who are rarely trained to do the broad range of tasks they are asked to do as a caregiver.

Know that you are not alone. At Caregiver Coalition we recognize your efforts and offer online resources such as training webinars and conferences so that you can receive support that you need. In order to sustain your patience and your caring and be successful caregiver over time, you need to honor your needs as well. Start with saying "I am a cargiver and I need help."

Please look under the "For Caregivers" tab or "County Wide Events" tab to find our library of free online webinars and other resources.
