If you provide care or assistance for a person who is frail, elderly or
has disabilities, you are a caregiver. You're not alone. Nearly one
out of every four households is involved in caregiving to persons age
50 or over.
Caregiving can be both physically and emotionally demanding. It's important
that you as a caregiver take care of yourself when another person depends on you.
Whether you provide care to an older family member or friend at home, for
a few hours, around the clock or even at a distance, Huntington Senior
Care Network can help make your job easier. Our support services for caregivers
are offered free of charge or provided for a small fee.
