WELCOME

Thank you for stopping by!

  

Welcome to CareGiver Transitions. It’s an honor to be a part of an incredible community of people who care for an aging or chronically ill family member or friend.  
 

Most of us don't start out calling ourselves "family caregivers". We care because we love, or perhaps due to family obligation. We may begin by "just helping out", or due to a medical crisis.


Before we know it, we're overwhelmed by the responsibilities of managing a family member's personal, medical, home, legal, financial, and social care needs.


Caregiving is an isolating experience, and yet 3.4 million Texans (and 40+ million people across the U.S.) are impacted by it's challenges. 


We do our best to adjust to the impact on our physical, emotional, workplace, and financial well being, but we need real help.  According to a 2017 report by Embracing Carers, the majority of family caregivers do not feel supported or valued by their community. Community support and resources are essential to sustain caregiving for both family caregivers and our care recipients. 


CareGiver Transitions offers support for family caregivers where they are. We connect with people who care to hear their stories, and offer community resources, referrals, and workshops that make a difference.

The Six Stages of Caregiving is an innovative concept developed by family caregiving expert Denise M. Brown.
