Senior Services of Snohomish County

Family Caregiver Network

Did you know that the majority of care is provided by family and friends without any public or professional support?

Caregiving can mean assisting with tasks such as bathing, dressing, or housekeeping or it may include helping with bill paying, decision making, finding resources, or with emotional support. More than a quarter of adults have cared for a family member or friend, who is chronically ill, disabled or elderly, at some point in the past year and approximately 85% of all home care is provided by unpaid caregivers. As the needs of loved ones increase, so do the responsibilities and challenges faced by the person providing care.

There are many services in our community that help families and friends care for their loved ones. Search our Resource Directory and Caregiver Calendar for programs that fit your situation and use the Lending Library and Caregiver Kit to locate educational materials.
