Caring for a loved one makes you a lot of things to a lot of people. You’re a chauffeur at the ready, a short-order chef, a dutiful housekeeper, a novice pharmacist and an emotional lifeline. WeCare…Because You Do℠ is your care partner, providing crucial support and proven expertise to relieve the stress and strain of caregiving.
Whether the person receiving care lives across the street or across the country from you, we provide indispensable resources and guidance.

- Exploring housing options
- Understanding respite possibilities
And with all the personal things, too:
- Creating strategies for challenging conversations
- Finding solutions to bring family members together around care
- Ensuring space to cope with all of the emotions triggered by caregiving

“It didn't take long for me to feel overwhelmed when my 80-year-old mother moved in with me. With all the worrying she would have another fall, I felt like I was running my own nursing home. My Care Consultant talked with me about my stress and ways to get a break. Without this information, I wouldn’t have known about the resources available. I still laugh about the first day I got some time away! I felt like a new person.” - Family Caregiver
We are proud to partner with Home Instead Senior Care, who works with us to promote our services and provide referrals to clients in the local community, as well as to offer educational programming for family caregivers.
