Called to Care: A Program For Family Caregivers
As a family caregiver, you may think the support you provide—helping your mother purchase and organize her medications, or taking a friend to his doctors’ appointments—is small in the grand scheme of things. But, the truth is you play a critical role in the health and well-being of your loved one, which is just as important as the care provided by doctors and nurses.
We want to begin by recognizing your valuable contributions and saying, “Thank you.” We sincerely appreciate all that you do. More importantly, we want to remind you that you are not alone. Just as you are there to care for your loved one, there are many individuals and organizations available to help you.
At Johns Hopkins Bayview, we recognize the importance of family caregivers, as well as the physical and emotional stresses that can accompany caregiving. Called to Care, a program funded in part by the Weinberg Foundation, helps prepare and support individuals caring for loved ones with health-related needs or limitations. The program offers assistance in several ways: supportive services, education, and partnerships with local agencies, organizations and faith communities.
