1. Caregiving in the Adirondacks

At this time Mercy Care for the Adirondacks , and its collaborating partners, are initiating a study of caregiving for people in the Adirondacks to determine the existing patterns of caregiving, the current and expected future needs for caregiving, and the personal and social needs of caregivers themselves.

Mercy Care for the Adirondacks is a mission sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy to extend mercy and justice to elders to enhance the fullness of their lives.

For the purposes of this survey, caregiver is defined as someone who provides/provided primary care to a person living at home who is over the age of 65, or ill, or disabled.
