If you are a caregiver or expect you may be one some day, it is important to take the necessary steps to avoid compromising your own future financial security. This booklet, from the Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement, can help get you started.
You cannot stop the impact of a chronic or progressive illness or a debilitating injury on someone for whom you care. But the Family Caregiver Alliance reminds you that caring for yourself is one of the most important — and one of the most often forgotten — things you can do as a caregiver.
One of the most extensive libraries for caregivers that exists today, the National Caregivers Library is your resource for hundreds of articles, forms, checklists and links to topic-specific resources.
Family Caregiver Alliance is first and foremost a public voice for caregivers. Founded in the late 1970s, FCA was the first community-based nonprofit organization in the country to address the needs of families and friends providing long-term care for loved ones at home.
