Are you caring for someone who is seriously ill? We can help. Hospice of Anchorage understands that being a caregiver is an important job. You shoulder many responsibilities caring for a friend or relative who is seriously ill. You may also have strong feelings arise as you watch your loved one coping with the difficulties of poor health.

We are here to help with:

Educational articles

Caregiving tips

Connections to local services

Links to national resources

A family blog tool

A monthly newsletter

You don’t have to do this alone. We are happy to offer this educational resource to support you, the friends and family who so tenderly care for your frail or ill loved ones. As experts in serious illness, we know the value of your contribution. Since 1980 we have worked with families providing nurse education, patient and family education, emotional and spiritual support, social services, volunteer support and community resources.

Whether you are concerned about your loved one’s eating habits or are coping with feelings of grief or hopelessness, check out our resources for:

Difficult symptoms

Medical concerns

Emotional and spiritual issues

Living with illness

Important decisions

Managing pain, easing fatigue, helping with bathing -- these are just some of the many ways family members support an ailing loved one. Print out articles, or email them to a friend or family member.

We have a new monthly newsletter, "Caring Answers Anchorage". It’s filled with timely tips such as tax breaks for family caregivers, protection from the summer heat for seniors, and coping with the holiday blues.

Grab your computer or phone and log on to http://www.CaringResourcesAnchorage.org and be sure to bookmark the page. You can also access this valuable resource by logging on to http://www.HospiceOfAnchorage.org.

If you have a question about caregiving or would like to know more about how we can help, contact us at 907-561-5322 or info@hospiceofanchorage.org.

Amy Tribbett is the executive director of Hospice of Anchorage.
