Caregiving places demands on people. There is no one profile of a caregiver, a caregiver’s situation, or the duration of the caregiving experience. Caregiving can range from periodic phone calls and visits from distant caregivers, buying groceries or managing money, to the daily duties of personal care. Caregiving responsibilities may also be spread over several households and beyond family to friends and acquaintances.
Information, training, decision support, respite, problem solving alternatives, and social support are among the things offered as services to caregivers. In Idaho there are several programs to aid caregivers with their responsibilities and challenges.
