More than 22 Million families are caring for a loved one at home.
As our population ages, more and more families will be taking care of a spouse, disabled relative, or grandparent at home. For many caregivers, taking care of a loved one is only part of other commitments to a job, and the routine running of a home.
Our Family Caregiver Program is based on the successful American Red Cross modular Family Caregiver Program, and is designed to give the caregiver basic non-medical training that helps balance caregiving responsibilities with other daily demands in a safe and nurturing way.
“Happy families aren’t born… they’re made one day at a time.”
