A supportgiver differs from a caregiver. A caregiver administers direct physical, psychological or spiritual care. Nurses, therapists and pastors are all examples of caregivers.

A supportgiver focuses on a different set of needs, such as attending to the personal environment, making meaningful visits, helping with decisions and correspondence, paying bills, setting appointments and becoming a caring advocate.

As a supportgiver, one is relieved of the physical and emotional stress of direct caregiving, thus enabling him or her to spend quality time supporting a loved one.
