A family caregiver is someone who helps another person with personal care, household chores, errands, finances, and such. Family caregivers commonly help with things like these:

  • assisting someone with things such as grooming, dressing, bathing, eating, moving around the house and toileting
  • helping with the administering of medications
  • driving someone to and from medical appointments
  • communicating with healthcare professionals
  • contacting community service organizations such as the Area Agency on Aging or the Alzheimer’s Association
  • helping arrange for homecare or hospice services
  • assisting someone in bill paying
  • helping someone clean his or her home or arrange for housecleaning
  • doing home repairs and yard work or arrange for someone else to do so

The Pennsylvania Homecare Association – in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, Office of Long-Term Living, and Long-Term Living Training Institute – has launched a series of free, online video courses that cover issues relevant to the training needs of individuals who provide in-home care and services for seniors and people with disabilities.
