Family and friends play a critical role in a loved one’s recovery and long-term care. Providing care for a loved one can be an extremely rewarding experience. At the same time, caregiving sometimes takes a heavy emotional, physical and financial toll. It is crucial to remember to pay attention to your own needs in addition to those of your loved one.

You are not alone! Help is available through many caregiver support programs. You can find help in your local community through the Eldercare Locator.
