Information for Caregivers

Providing care to a loved one or close friend can have its rewards. A caregiver provides basic care to a person who has a medical condition (cancer or Alzheimer's) that prevents them from caring for themselves. Caregivers often help the person with the activities of daily living, such as preparing and eating food, taking medicine, bathing, and dressing. 

Providing for the ongoing care for another person can take a lot out of you. Often times, caregivers develop feelings of depression and anxiety associated with the challenges of providing for the daily care of someone who is ill or aging. 

At St. Joseph's Physicians, we recognize the importance of caregivers in the life of person who must cope with an illness or disability. Our goal is to help not only those faced with health concerns, but to support the caregiver in this critical role.
