Are You a Caregiver? You are a caregiver if you care or support a frail, homebound elderly. You could be a family member, relative or friend. Your care recipient may require assistance in daily living activities, such as bathing, feeding, toileting, transfers and walking. He or she may be homebound and also require long term care for multiple chronic medical conditions, such as stroke, hypertension and diabetes.
Caregiving can be both physically and emotionally challenging, especially when you have to meet other demands at home and at work. You may also feel alone and unsupported as the main caregiver.

Holistic care and support services are delivered by a team of doctors, nurses, therapists and care coordinators experienced in geriatric care.
