Caregiver Support

The stresses of managing a loved one’s life, keeping track of medical treatments, medications, preparing food and making decisions about when and where care needs to be given – caregiving has a significant impact. No matter how much support a caregiver receives, it never seems to be enough.

The Volen Center and its staff believe that it is critical that every caregiver knows what his or her rights are as a caregiver and has the emotional and practical support that he or she needs not only to be a good caregiver, but also to have a life outside of the caregiving role.
