Lifting Caregivers Raises Us All

 

We've all heard of Boomers, Millennials, Gen X and Gen Z. But, there's a new, emerging generation that transcends age, race, income, geography and gender.

We call them Generation Care – the everyday people taking on the extraordinary role of caring for a loved one living with a serious illness, whose healthcare requires ongoing support at home or between appointments. Caregiving is a universal aspect of life that, until now, has been largely feared, misunderstood and hidden. We believe it's time for that to change.

At Janssen, we're committed to showing the heart of the caregiver’s experience and providing the kind of support and information that will make a difference in caregivers' lives and for those who depend on them, every day.

Resources for Caregivers

 

We partnered with The Mighty, an online community for people facing health challenges and the people who care for them, to develop a caregiver toolkit. Click here to view the Mighty Toolkit and learn more about the ins and outs of caregiving and discover helpful resources you can utilize along your caregiving journey.

See below for additional resources for caregivers, including information on taking care of yourself, providing the best care for a loved one, navigating your career, legal and financial planning, and bringing help into the home.
