The Many Roles of a Family Caregiver

From our friends at, comes this great info-graphic about caregiving roles.  What roles are you playing today?  My day will be mostly helper, chef and companion.  But I will do a little advocacy here on my blog and at home as well.  I used to be a full-time nurse for Nicholas, but we are grateful to have paid care now.  I’ll be working with our paid caregiver team on a couple of changes in Nick’s care plan today.  Caregivers have many roles.  We are wives, mothers and daughters too (or husbands, fathers and sons)!
