All About Caregivers

Dear Caregivers

Thank you for all that you do! We want you to feel supported here and know that you are not alone. Please watch closely as we begin to populate this section of the CPC with many useful tools and resources for you.

We understand that as a caregiver you may be putting the care of your loved one before yourself. That’s normal, but please understand that you will be a better caregiver if you give yourself care too. The CPC wants to help you take care of YOU, as well as the person in your care.

In this section of the CPC, you will find articles written by other caregivers, and also messages to caregivers by patients, health care providers, non-profit organizations and companies that want to support you. Plus, opportunities for social connection with other caregivers, tools to help make your caregiving more effective, and many other programs and resources just for you.

We hope that you will find the resources you need and the community you crave here at the CPC. For more information, please visit our Pain Cooperative partner the Caregiver Action Network.

The Caregiver Action Network is the nation’s leading family caregiver organization working to improve the quality of life for the 90 million Americans who care for loved ones with chronic conditions, disabilities, disease, or the frailties of old age. CAN serves a broad spectrum of family caregivers ranging from the parents of children with special needs, to the families and friends of wounded soldiers; from a young couple dealing with a diagnosis of MS, to adult children caring for parents with Alzheimer’s disease.
