Caregivers are among our nation’s heroes, providing selfless services while facing many challenges, often times, with little reward.
Few people identify themselves as family caregivers, yet in Arizona alone, 855,000 family caregivers provide care at a value of $9 billion annually (Arizona Caregiver Coalition, 2013). Family caregivers accept their roles gladly but are generally unprepared for the activities and stresses they unquestioningly assume.
Likewise, tens of thousands of professional caregivers face serious challenges of inadequate training and limited career development.
FSL’s Caregiver Services program was created to provide solutions to these critical issues.
