Have you become isolated?

If you are caring for an older, ill or disabled adult, you may have trouble keeping up with your family, friends or other interests. It is easy to become isolated.

These resources can help you to connect with others, protect your health and provide your loved one with good care.

Join a Support Group

You will meet others facing similar challenges and attending regular meetings can help you feel less alone. View a current list of Caregiver Support Groups

Participate in a Powerful Tools for Caregivers Class

Sign up for an upcoming class that will help you 'thrive' as a caregiver, not just 'survive'. This six-week educational class will help you take care of yourself while caring for a relative or friend. You will benefit from this class whether you are helping a parent, spouse, friend, someone who lives at home, in a nursing home or across the country.
