Whether it’s giving a ride to an appointment, helping with meal preparation, or coordinating medical care, providing unpaid support to an adult family member or friend is often meaningful and fulfilling. But it’s also true that taking on additional care responsibilities can be challenging. 

Community resources can play an important role in helping caregivers balance their own needs with those with those of their loved one. These community resources can include:

Trainings that teach you how to care for your loved one;
Financial supports; and
Respite, or short breaks from care responsibilities, provided by either paid workers or volunteers

To make sure Colorado has the right public policies in place to support caregivers, we’re asking for your help. The following survey asks what community resources you’re using as a caregiver - but also asks what resources would make your life a bit easier. We’ll use this information to create policies that provide Colorado caregivers with the resources they find most meaningful. Your voice and insights are essential to making sure our policies in Colorado reflect the actual needs and wants of caregivers across our state.
