Caregivers provide a broad range of care and support for loved ones with serious acute, chronic or disabling conditions.
Family caregivers may be primary or secondary caregivers and live with or live separately from the person needing care and support. The tasks of caregiving can range and change depending on the needs of the care recipient.
Often a caregiver may handle medical appointments and visits, secure and administer medication, acquire medical equipment, and assist an individual with ranging activities of daily living such as eating, bathing, toileting, dressing and household chores, as well as social, spiritual and leisure activities.
A caregiver may also act as a resource of important information as well as advocate with healthcare professionals on behalf of a loved one.

There are only four kinds of people in the world:
Those who have been caregivers.
Those who are currently caregivers. Those who will be caregivers,
and those who will need a caregiver.
