A "family caregiver" is anyone who provides any type
of physical and/or emotional care for an ill or disabled
loved one at home. Sometimes, "family" is whoever shows
up to help. This site is provided to help you obtain
information about caregiving, recognize when you need
help, ask for and accept assistance from others, and
take care of yourself.
To find out about our caregiver programs, see our calendar
of events. These programs include:
support groups for caregivers who would like
to exchange experiences and coping strategies from
the convenience of their homes or offices. These
groups will be available via a toll free number
to caregivers in the United States and Canada.
webcast seminars for caregivers of the medically
ill. These seminars, which will be offered free
of charge through the Internet and via telephone,
will provide practical information from experts
in the field.
available is The Caregiver Resource Directory, a practical
guide that includes much of the information available
on this site, while also offering a way to organize
materials and information. Find out more about the Caregiver
Resource Directory, or order a free copy.
