Caregiver Support Services
Caregiving simply means the act of helping another person who is not able to care for themselves. This can be temporary or ongoing, and the level of care needed may change over time.
Informal Caregiving means providing unpaid assistance to another individual. The vast majority of care is provided by an informal caregiver. In-home or respite funds may be available for those who qualify.
Caregivers are empowered in their role when they are aware of available resources and have a thorough understanding of the particular health issues of the individual they are assisting.
