Lompoc Valley Medical Center: Family Caregiver Support Network (FCSN) is working to provide additional resources to help family caregivers cope with the challenges of caring for a loved one. Are you a family caregiver in need of information or assistance? Are you interested in learning more about the programs and services that may be of assistance to you or your loved one?

Are you doing their routine homemaking tasks of bills, cleaning, meals and shopping? Is your loved one unable to manage their own hygiene care? If you answered YES it may be time to evaluate your loved one’s living situation.
Caring for a loved one with dementia creates many challenges for caregivers. People with dementia-related conditions experience a progressive decline in their cognitive function.
As a caregiver, your job is very important. It is equally important to take steps to ensure you are at the peak of your health, so that you will be in the best shape to care for another person.
