What is a Family Caregiver?

It could be a family member, a friend, a neighbor, or a partner. Many caregivers may never realize the term applies to them. Caring for one’s family, for many, is a natural part of everyday life. No thought or consideration is given to the term, work, or duties. Many caregivers have other obligations such as family, children, home, spouse, work, and countless other things, but as your parents took care of you, you, in turn, take care of them. Experiencing burnout is a very real thing for a caregiver. You take care of everyone, but who is there to take care of you? Did you know there is help?

Our Family Caregiver specialist is here to help you connect with programs and information such as caregiver respite, services for chronically ill or impaired seniors, health services, housing, in-home services, health insurance counseling, intergenerational activities, nutrition, and transportation. If you have any questions, problems, or concerns, please call our specialist at (805) 477-7300 for more information.
