Caregiver Support

Since opening our doors, Carpenter Hospice has recognized the need to support both residents and their family members and/or loved ones throughout the palliative care process. Palliative care is a 24/7 job, whether in the home or in a hospice. We understand that stress and burn-out are very real issues that caregivers face when taking care of their loved ones.

A caregiver is a person who takes on an unpaid caring role for someone who needs help because of a physical or cognitive condition, an injury or a chronic life-limiting illness.

The Hospice is leading the way to establish more outreach programs in the community, and to offer more on-site resources to caregivers. We are committed to finding new ways to better support our caregivers.
