Caregiver Support

The important role of caregivers

A caregiver refers to anyone who provides care for another person. As a caregiver you help relieve burdens and support individuals in need. This important role may last for a long time or just a short time but regardless of the length of care it is not easy for anyone.

This complicated disease demands that caregivers make sacrifices and adjustments. Access to information, resources and support can help you navigate these important responsibilities.
