How is Caring for a Loved One Affecting You?

The Brown County Caregiver Coalition is conducting a community wide survey in order to learn from caregivers who are providing informal support to adult family members, friends, or neighbors. Our goal is to identify the strengths, and understand needs and challenges caregivers face as they care for their loved ones. The results will be used to determine how the community can support and enhance caregivers in this important role.
This survey is for caregivers who are not currently employed but providing informal caregiving support. Some of the information we want to learn is the number of hours spent caregiving, the challenges of caregiving, and areas for strengthening resources. The confidential survey can be accessed here or by contacting the ADRC at 920-448-4300. The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Your information will be kept confidential.
