Caring Web- Education and Support for Caregivers

This site is designed for caregivers and survivors of stroke to provide general educational information and support. Much of this content may also be useful for other caregivers or persons with cognitive issues related to diseases such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's.


An estimated 43.5 million adult family caregivers provide care to adults and children who are disabled, ill, or aged. Of these, over 5 million Americans live with after-effects of stroke. Most persons with stroke return home after initial rehabilitation treatment and are cared for by family members.
