Resources for Caregivers​

Nearly one in four adults in the United States is a long-term caregiver for an older spouse, relative, or friend.

Older adults are increasingly being cared for by family or friends at home due to:

  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Limitations in insurance coverage
  • Shrinking financial resources

The Aging Institute and its partners recognize the increasing responsibilities assumed by caregivers, new roles that they are often unprepared to assume.

If you are a caregiver in the greater Pittsburgh area, the Aging Institute can help connect you to the many community resources available to help you better understand the aging process and assist you in the delivery of caring for your loved one. Caregivers also are called upon to help older adults make important decisions about their care, from levels of desired health care, to living options, to end-of-life planning. Links to a wealth of national resources are also available on this site.

Our educational efforts address the needs of caregivers and provide educational programs to build awareness and understanding of many challenges that accompany aging.

This website provides you with valuable information and resources to assist you in these and other important considerations, including:

Finding Support from Other Caregivers

Sharing experiences with others is a good outlet for caregivers and helps provide an outlet to the challenging demands of providing care.

Other caregivers can offer suggestions and assistance as well as coping strategies.

Find support groups close to you.
