Resources for Caregivers

Taking care of a friend or family can be just as rewarding, as it is difficult.

Most of us are not trained to be caregivers so the prospect of assuming these responsibilities can be challenging and scary. It is normal to feel uncertain or overwhelmed.

That is why we have prepared this library of useful resources for caregivers. We hope you can find answers to common questions and read useful tips on how to be an effective caregiver while also taking care of yourself.
