Guide for Caregivers

New York City is home to an estimated 900,000 to 1.3 million caregivers. Many of them are women or older adults who provide at least 30 hours of care each week to their loved ones. Many of them also work outside the home.

The resources in this section are a general guide to help caregivers navigate services, benefits, and programs related to caregiving.

Some of the resources are provided by the Department for the Aging’s Caregiver Resource Center, Grandparent Resource Center, or community providers.

Explore the resources, print the information, and refer back as you make decisions related to your loved one’s care.
