Family caregiving may be one of the most important and challenging responsibility a person will undertake in their lifetime. Family caregivers provide care for a person who is 60 years of age or older.
Often family caregiving responsibilities gradually become more and more demanding or a person is unexpectedly thrust into the situation as a result of an illness. This is not an easy role, nor is it one for which most of us are prepared. Like most people, you may have questions about how to cope with your care receiver's illnesses or disability.
If you have a job and are juggling several responsibilities or if your family member or friend needs a lot of assistance, you may need help with caregiving too! It's useful to know where you can get information and help.
We have several resources to assist you in caring for your aging loved ones. To better understand your situation and what resources would best fit your needs, please fill out the form below. By completing the form, you agree to be contacted for a follow-up by the Los Angeles Department of Aging.
