"Being a caregiver isn’t always easy. It isn’t even easy to define. Being a caregiver doesn’t mean you give up all the other things you are—spouse, mother, sister, friend or employee."

This publication is designed to help children in deciding how to best support their senior parents. It offers options and tools on how to best be supportive to their loved ones, while still maintaining if independence if possible. The full spectrum of services is discussed from visiting nurses to their home to hospice care.
