Family Caregiver Hub

At myCareBase, we know that to keep a senior living safely and happily at home, the family also needs as much help as they can get.

Within this Family Caregiver Hub, you will find a collection of curated content and important resources to support the family caregiver whether that caregiver is a spouse, adult child or other relative.

This hub will expand over time, and include things like articles, e-books, brochures, interview transcripts, videos and webinar recordings. It will include content that is purely original to myCareBase and also content developed with third party experts. We will organize everything in such a way that makes it easy for you to find the right resources that apply to your current caregiving issues.

Much of the content here is also useful for seniors who are planning for their own care, with or without family involved.
