The Caregiver's Bill of Rights


By: CaregiverZone

Caregivers often lose themselves in providing care. Remember - you have rights too. Post this Bill of Rights where you can see it to remind yourself of your value.

  • You have the right to receive the knowledge, resources, training and support you need to be successful as a caregiver.

  • You have the right to acknowledge your own needs and to expect those needs to be met.

  • You have the right to enjoy a well-rounded and meaningful life that includes family, friends, work, activities you love and time to yourself.

  • You have the right to seek and accept help from community, family, friends and support services.

  • You have the right to access quality services that treat you and the person you are caring for with dignity and consideration.

  • You have the right to all of your feelings as a caregiver, from the moments of unexpected joy to those of anger and frustration.

  • You have the right to be a part of a caregiving team rather than having to do it all by yourself.

  • You have the right to ask for - and receive - appreciation and respect for your caregiving.

  • You have the right to acknowledge that the unique gift of your time, energy and emotions has as much value as any caregiving task.
