The transition from independent personal care to supported personal care can be challenging and every individual has a different support structure.
When reviewing your options, it is important to look at your own family structure, culture and what expectations you and your family members may have.

Caregiving can be intimidating at first but there are small steps you can take to make everyday life more manageable. Check out our Caregivers First blog for some suggestions on how to ease assistance with personal care.
