Being a caregiver means:

  • Helping someone close to you… 

They might be a friend, a spouse or, ex-spouse or family member. 

  • Because they have lost their autonomy… 

This may be due to physical or cognitive problems (e.g. reduced mobility due to age, an accident or handicap, Alzheimer’s, etc.) 

  • And supporting them in any form. 

This might include shopping or meal prep, managing accounts and bills, providing medical care or attending to their hygiene, etc. This support can be from 1 hour per week to full time, for 6 months, or for life.
