For all who help (or helped) care for another human being during such a tumultuous season, we wonder:
How are you changed?
We’d love to hear from you in recognition of National Family Caregivers Month this November!
We are daughters, sons, spouses, parents, grandchildren, friends, and others committed to doing our best to care for a family member or friend due to aging, chronic illness, or differences in ability.
We rarely begin our journey 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 can be overwhelmed by the responsibilities and stress of managing a family member’s personal, medical, home, legal, financial, and social care needs.
As the foundation of our health care system, family caregivers provide an estimated $35 billion in care annually here in Texas (estimated over $470 billion nationally). To sustain our healthcare system, we need support beyond direct care services to manage the impact on our physical, emotional, workplace, and financial well-being.
CareGiver Transitions provides purposeful resources, training, and tools to help individual family caregivers, community organizations, and businesses manage the impact in each stage of caregiving.
