transcript Are you a caregiver? - Welcome Video

Hello, I'm Secretary of Elder Affairs, Alice Bonner. Thank you for visiting our page on caregiving.

Do you care for a family member or a loved one?

Do you bring your mom groceries or drive your friend to a medical appointment?

Do you remind someone to take their medications?

Maybe you take care of kids while also caring for your aging parents.

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you're one of 43 million family caregivers in the United States.

Massachusetts offers a number of services to help you find support and maintain your own health and wellness as you care for others.

If you have any additional questions after reviewing this material, please call MassOptions, our aging and disability information line, toll-free, at 1-844-422-6277 for more assistance.

And thank you for all that you do as a caregiver for someone in your life.
