"There are only four kinds of people in the world – those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregivers"
- Rosalyn Carter
The role of caregiver is one that can be as simple as accompanying a family member to an appointment to act as an extra set of eyes and ears, or as complicated as administering therapies and other aid. We can offer a variety of resources to assist the person in the caregiver role, as well as connect you with other caregivers for support and encouragement.
Ever wonder how being a caregiver might affect the way you look at everyday life; what decisions and responsibilities might become part of your routine; how your relationship with your loved one might change? The American Medical Association's Caregiver Health Self-Assessment will help you better understand how the role may affect you and help you learn to make decisions that will benefit both you and the one for which you care.
