The physical and psychological limitations older adults face as a result of their advancing age often forces them to depend on family members and paraprofessional caregivers for assistance.
Today, one in four American adults provide care to an aging relative. Family and friends provide almost 75% of care received by Alzheimer’s Disease patients in America. The physical, emotional, and financial cost of providing this care is significant. Caregivers often suffer from depression, anxiety, frustration, headaches, insomnia, and helplessness.
Are you a caregiver? Are you part of the "sandwich generation," coping with older parents and younger children at home? We’re here to help by providing you with support, education and respite. We provide consultations and counseling, care management, and community education events geared especially for families with an aging relative. We also publish articles and can connect you with other resources (www.caregivinghelp.org) and support groups that may help you cope better with the stresses of being a family caregiver.
