“There are four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers; those who currently are caregivers; those who will be caregivers; and those who will need caregivers.” ~ Rosalynn Carter
A caregiver is anyone who takes care of another person. A family caregiver provides this kind of care to a family member or friend without being paid. Last year in the United States, one in four households did this kind of work.
Caregiving can be rewarding, but it can also take its toll. You are not alone. Help is available through the Caregiver Support Program. Contact your local Aging and Disability Resource Center for more information.
