There are many types of caregivers, because the term caregiver refers to anyone who provides help to another person in need. This may be a few hours a week, or full-time, live-in support. The person being cared for may live at home, with you, or with another friend or family member, or in a residential facility. The person receiving care may have a disability, such as dementia, cancer or brain injury, or may just need a little help with basic daily tasks.
The Easterseals Rehabilitation Center has many programs to support caregivers, such as the ReadAbility Family Resource Library. We also host occasional workshops throughout the year, and host support groups like IASF. Information about these meetings and workshops are listed on our website as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages.
