- You may be a family caregiver if you provide care or support for an adult or child with a chronic or disabling condition.
- Being a family caregiver for a spouse, parent, child, or loved one takes a lot of time, effort and work. It can be both intellectually and emotionally challenging. You may have become a caregiver suddenly and without warning, or perhaps your role evolved slowly over time.
- A caregiver is most often an unpaid individual (a spouse, significant other, family member, friend, or neighbor).
- There are more than 850,000 family caregivers in Washington State who assist in the care of their spouses, parents, and children—those from across the lifespan.
- You matter: Clearly, your loved ones need you. And your daily work saves our State billions of dollars every year.
- You deserve an occasional break to help you in your important role. You deserve RESPITE.
