Does someone rely on you for care? 
If they do, you may be a Caregiver

Do you help a senior with:

  • Personal care?
  • Shopping?
  • Going to doctor's appointments?
  • Managing money or bills?
  • Other problems or questions they have?

Caring for a relative or friend may be something you never expected to do.

Regardless of your age, you are a Caregiver if you provide routine assistance to a loved one 60 years of age or older who is frail, disabled, or has a chronic illness.

There are 48 million unpaid caregivers of adults ages 65 and older in the United States.
