Who can be a caregiver?

“Caregiver” is a broad term that includes anyone who cares for a person with extensive needs, like a child with a disability, or an older adult. If you are a parent, grandparent, daughter, son, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, friend, neighbor, or professional who provides care for another person, you are a caregiver. Caregiving is different for everyone. Here are some examples of what caregiver looks like:

► Running everyday errands like grocery shopping or going to the post office for a loved one who can no longer do so themselves.
► Helping a loved one do day-to-day activities like getting dressed, eating or taking a shower.
► Organizing a loved one’s medical treatment and taking them to appointments.
► Managing a loved one’s finances.
► Living with a loved one because it is unsafe for them to live by themselves.

  • Training and education for caregivers
