Family Caregiver Checklist

Stepping into the role of being a family caregiver is often met with an overwhelming amount of questions: 

Where do I start to look for information?
What are my options?
Where do I go for resources?
How do I cope with caregiver stress?
What are legal issues surrounding caregiving?

The USC Family Caregiver Support Center has developed a Family Caregiver Checklist
to help prepare family caregivers to navigate through common questions and topics.

This checklist will help you identify which areas you are knowledgeable about
and which you may need assistance with handling.
