Caregivers & Caregiving Workshop

Caregiving is providing care for the daily needs of someone that is unable to care for themselves. Caregiving may include physical care, emotional care, and service to help meet physical and emotional needs.

 

Caregiving may involve help with activities important for daily living such as bathing, dressing, feeding, shopping, transportation, and managing finances. Caregivers may provide support to someone who is aging, ill, disabled, or has some other factor that limits their self-care.
