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. For this reason, we have created Called to Care®, a program that prepares and supports individuals caring for loved ones with health-related needs or limitations. The program, which received funding from the Weinberg Foundation, offers assistance in several ways: supportive serviceseducation, and community organizations and agencies.
