A caregiver needs to have support and on occasion, some help for themselves to help prevent mental health issues like depression. This is very important for family members who take the role as dementia caregivers.  Caregiver support is available from several different sources, one of which is their local Caregiver Program.  The programs are often affiliated with caregiver services, funded by the federal government and supported through state and county social service agencies.  Agencies for aging and disability provide a great deal of caregiver support and additionally may provide relief and respite to caregivers for seniors or for those with disabilities (such as autism).

Government caregiver programs may be called upon to help children or the elderly, or to assist parents of children with disabilities in the areas of education and awareness.  Often they fund outside agencies providing caregiver education.  It is not uncommon for these agencies to offer a caregiver course using video’s as an integral part of the training.  Many of the agencies have come to us for their caregiver products and resources.
