Maine Agencies on Aging can help walk you through your caregiving experience.


Caregiving in Maine

Ever sit at work wondering if Mom has taken her medication or if Dad has eaten lunch? Ever worry about how to balance work, kids, and "checking in" on your parents? Are you caring for your spouse and doing all the things he or she used to do?

A "caregiver" provides unpaid assistance to an aging adult, be it transportation, grocery shopping, preparing meals, yard work, house cleaning, dressing, or sorting the bills.

Caregiving is a big job and maybe the most important you'll ever do. While rewarding, it can be challenging. Don't go it alone. Call your local experts on aging to make your life easier.
