Being the primary caregiver for an elderly loved one can be a demanding, stressful, and rewarding job. People who have been caregivers know that the days are long and the work is difficult. Many caregivers cannot get out to do the most basic of activities such as grocery shopping, going for a walk or seeing a movie.
The In-Home Services Bureau staff may be able to help caregivers and others looking for information or assistance about caregiving by:
