Caregiver Definition

Unpaid or informal caregivers include relatives, friends, or others who volunteer to help. Family caregivers are not volunteers!  They give up everything for the care of their loved one and should be compensated.  The financial difficulties each family faces is staggering and in this climate where caregivers are scarce and burnt out we need to recognize the services of these caregivers.
