Helping someone dear to you can be rewarding. But it can also take its toll. Many caregivers don't recognize the signs of burnout, deepening depression, or the impact of care giving on their own health. In Washington, more than 850,000 unpaid family caregivers are helping someone 18 years of age or older to remain at home. You are not alone. We are here to help.
