If you are a family caregiver chances are that you have also become a health and financial manager, carrying out medical and financial tasks for your spouse or loved one, that traditionally were handled by health care providers. Today many caregivers like yourself are expected to carry out these complex tasks often with little to no preparation, training or support.
Know that you are not alone. For this reason, AARP is working with 211 LA, and USC’s Family Caregiver Support Center to offer support through a community program called Ayudando a Quien Ayuda™ (Helping the Helper™), designed for caregivers seeking guidance and resources to help care for a family member or close friend with one or more chronic medical conditions.

Ayudando a Quien Ayuda (Helping the Helper) serves select communities in southeastern Los Angeles County. If you live outside the service area, 211 LA is still able to help you find information and resources available across Los Angeles County.
Additionally, Vision y Compromiso, a nationally respected organization dedicated to improving the health and well-being of communities will conduct caregiving workshops throughout Los Angeles through its network of Promotores.
