Family Caregiving

Helping you take care of yourself, so you can take better care of your loved one.


We’re here to support you.

Taking care of an aging loved one is a complicated journey. We are here to help you throughout your caregiving journey. Most family members don’t consider the care they provide as “caregiving” – they’re just doing what comes naturally. However, a family caregiver is defined as someone who provides unpaid care for a loved one. And whether that care is provided in town or across the country, it’s a responsibility that can take a physical, mental, and emotional toll.


Hope for dementia family caregivers

Nationwide, the unmet need of family caregivers is extensive and rapidly growing. When 95% of participants surveyed from Duet’s signature Finding Meaning and Hope discussion series reported that it significantly lowered their stress, Duet recognized the urgent need to make it available to isolated dementia family caregivers beyond Maricopa County. Duet’s Meaning & Hope Institute is here to empower all dementia family caregivers to better care for themselves, especially those who are isolated and under-served, through access to a community of support and vital resources.
