About Caregivers

Providing Support to Family Caregivers


Passages Caregiver Resource Center provides support to family caregivers in order to ease the physical and emotional challenges of caregiving.

Who is a Caregiver?

The term caregiver refers to anyone who provides physical, emotional, financial, or logistical support to a loved one with a disabling condition. While many people in this situation do not identify with the term “caregiver,” it is important for them to know about the resources available to support them as they care for their loved one. Some examples of caregivers include: a person caring for a spouse who has suffered a stroke; someone caring for a relative who has Parkinson’s disease; a grandchild providing assistance to a grandfather with Alzheimer’s disease; or a parent caring for a son with a traumatic brain injury.

If you help with any of the following tasks: Preparing meals, bathing and getting dressed, grocery shopping, cleaning the house, managing medications, arranging for services, paying household bills, getting in and out of bed, getting to doctor visits, then…YOU ARE A CAREGIVER!
