Supporting Families Caring for an Older Adult at Home
Family caregivers play a vital role in providing care for their older relatives, who wish to remain home for as long as possible. In fact, 80% of non-medical assistance is provided by families. These family caregivers across the country currently provide an estimated $306 billion in 'unpaid' caregiving services.

Caregivers often feel stressed and alone, trying to balance their own needs with those of their loved ones. Over and over again, family caregivers report that they are in need of information about what resources are available to themselves and the care receiver.

Help is Available
Larimer County's Office on Aging Family Caregiver Support Program is here to assist family caregivers who are caring for an older adult at home.
