Welcome to Caregiverology.com - the study of caregiving!

To explore this site, click any topic in the navigation bar (or the blue MENU button on mobile devices) at the top of this page.

The purpose of this site is to assist caregivers of all kinds to be the best they can be. Work is currently being done in order to rekindle this site. There are many challenges faced when caring for others. Needing help is nothing to be ashamed of.

Whether it is a physical, mental, or emotional struggle, this site is for you.

This site was built to focus on all aspects of caregiving and to give people all around the world an advantage at this challenging task. It is a worldwide hub of useful information that makes patients' experiences better.

There are many different types of people who give this care. Some work or volunteer in a hospital, nursing home, or similar care facility while others take care of their friend or relative in need. Regardless, we could all use a helping hand whether it is better ways to give care, or inspiration to keep moving forward when things are at their worst.

In order to be at your best when performing your caregiver duties, you also have to take care of yourself. This is something I like to call caregiver care. Too many of us skip this crucial step. You, on the other hand, don't have to. It is more important than you may realize and your patient's experience will, without a doubt, benefit from it. Here are some inspirational quotes to pick you up when you are feeling down.

No task is the same and there are millions of people who need our helping hand.

This site strives to make these tasks better not only for you, but for the person receiving the care. That should be your primary focus, so if it isn't already, stop right now and make that your goal. It will without a doubt improve the care you give to your patients.

The world is in dire need of more and more of people like you and me as the years go by. Because of the aging baby boomers, by 2030, it is estimated that a third of the population in the United States will be 65 and older.

Although this site is relatively small in comparison to many others, it still has a lot of great information and will continue to grow. New features and updates are constantly being added over time so check back often. I am hard at work striving to make this site the best it can be.
