Questionnaire to Identify Young Caregivers

Did you know? 1 in 4 caregivers are millenials. You’re not alone—support and help is available.

Answer the following questions to determine whether or not you may be a caregiver.

1) Does someone in your family live with a chronic condition?

2) Are you or do you feel responsible for helping a family member coordinate financial, personal or medical care, either directly or from afar?

3) Are you overwhelmed by a family member who leans on you as their main source of emotional support?

4) Do you spend time caring for a family member on weekends and/or during school breaks/vacations?

5) Does caring for a family member prevent you from working for pay or participating in other activities outside of school or class?

6) Do you worry about a family member who needs your help while you’re in class or trying to complete assignments?

7) Does caring for a family member make it difficult to study?

8) Does caring for a family member have an influence on your plans for after graduation?

If you answered YES to one or a combination of these questions above, you may be a young family caregiver (informal caregiver and/or long-distance caregiver).

You’re not alone—support and help is available.
