If you provide care or assistance for a person who is frail, elderly or has disabilities, you are a caregiver. You're not alone. Nearly one out of every four households is involved in caregiving to persons age 50 or over.
Caregiving can be both physically and emotionally demanding. It's important that you as a caregiver take care of yourself when another person depends on you.
Whether you provide care to an older family member or friend at home, for a few hours, around the clock or even at a distance, Huntington Hospital Senior Care Network can help make your job easier. Services are free of charge or provided for a small fee.
- Professional assistance with referrals to resources essential for successful caregiving
- Taking Care of You: Powerful Tools for Caregivers, an interactive group program for family caregivers
- Education classes to strengthen coping strategies and gain self-care skills
- Support group facilitation at local companies
