New to Caregiving? Start Here.

Caregiving can be overwhelming for anyone. If you’re new to caregiving, take a deep breath and then tackle one task at a time. Consider these tips when getting started with caregiving:

  • Assess your loved one’s needs. Work with the person you’re caring for to figure out what types of help are needed.
  • Ask others to share caregiving tasks. Splitting up tasks among family members and friends can help both the person needing care and the primary caregiver.
  • Explore resources in your community. Local resources may help you find in-home help, transportation, support, and other services in your area.
  • Learn about different options for paying for care. The person needing care may qualify for programs that offer financial assistance.
