Caregiving may be one of the most important roles you will ever take on in your life. You may have become a caregiver suddenly or perhaps your role has evolved over time. No matter where you are in the caregiving continuum - starting to plan or taking care of a family member - having resources at your fingertips will make the process easier.
With many organizations offering different types of help and services, it can be a challenge to sort out the specific type of help or services best suited for your needs. AARP CT developed resource guides - with you, the caregiver - in mind for caregiving in Connecticut or assisting a family member in Puerto Rico. It's a starting point to help you find the services and supports you need throughout your caregiving journey. We hope they can assist you in the following ways:
- Find the type of assistance you need in-person and online;
- Connect with others through a community of caregivers and caregiver supporters;
- Inform you how to take care of yourself to prevent burn-out.
