Caregiver Resources

Because We Care

A Guide for People Who Care

Table of Contents -- (Disclaimer)

An online resource guide for the growing number of Americans who are caring for an older family member, adult child with disabilities, or older friend. This Guide provides information and a range of suggestions to make caregiving easier and more successful--whether you are the caregiver or the person who ensures that your family member or friend receives the best possible care from others. Since this Guide contains many links to outside references, the online html version is recommended; for better printing, a PDF version is available also.
