Disability.gov’s caregiving section contains a broad range of resources for family caregivers. In addition, this guide connects you to programs, services, government agencies and organizations that can help you as you care for a spouse, child, parent or other family member. Family caregivers take on many different roles and tasks. A caregiver may be a child who takes care of an older parent, a parent caring for an adult child with a developmental disability, or a spouse who provides for the daily needs of a husband or wife with a disability or chronic health condition. In addition to taking care of the basic emotional and physical needs of a loved one, family caregivers transport loved ones to medical appointments; provide daily personal care including bathing, dressing and meals preparation; manage finances and medications and act as an overall "healthcare coordinator."
