How we help caregivers

We provide robust resources, education and online information to caregivers nationwide through our website www.caregiver.org. We also offer a free online tool called CareNav—a dashboard full of customized resources to help caregivers navigate the complex journey of caregiving. Learn more about CareNav here.

For caregivers in the San Francisco Bay Area*, we offer additional in-depth 1:1 support and services, including:

  • Assessment – One of our Family Consultants conducts an assessment to clearly understand the caregiver’s situation, needs, and access to resources and support. 
  • Care planning – We create a comprehensive action plan addressing the current and future needs of the family and care recipient.
  • High-quality education programs – Articles, webinars and other resources help caregivers build skills and educate about chronic conditions, care planning and self-care.
  • Referrals – When appropriate, we make referrals to community programs such as adult day care, support groups, home care, legal/financial consultation and respite services.

Many of our resources are available in a variety of languages such as Chinese, Spanish, Vietnamese and Tagalog.
