Caregiving & Support

Changes that come in later life can be especially challenging. It’s tough to face the loss of health, home, and independence. You can help ease these transitions by planning ahead, talking honestly with your loved ones, and getting the support you need.

Thinking about housing or caregiving arrangements for the future can be a stressful, anxiety-provoking topic for both you and your family. However, the earlier you face your specific issues, the more choices and control you will have over your future.
