We also have specific resources for military caregivers.

What is a Caregiver

Are you handling your aging mother's bills? Do you take your grandfather to the grocery store once a week? Do you take time off work to drive your aunt to her doctor appointments? If so, you are a caregiver ... and there are many services and supports available to you and the person for whom you are caring.

We offer a variety of programs and resources to provide support and care for caregivers. Reach out to your local Easterseals to learn about what services are offered near you.

  • Respite Care

Our respite services are offered nationwide and designed to give caregivers a much-needed break from the stress of caregiving.
  • Step-By-Step Caregiving Guide

  • Whether you're planning for future caregiving needs, or learning how to make decisions as a caregiver, we're here for you every step of the way with our caregiving guide.
  • Easterseals and Freddie Mac Offer Financial Guidance

  • Financial stability and home security are an important part of anyone’s life, but for caregivers managing money may create additional stress. Easterseals and partners at Freddie Mac created a series of resources to help you elevate some of that stress so that you can focus and invest in what matters to you most.
