Published 5/2016 English

Course Description

Almost one third of the US population will become a caregiver to an ailing family member. Often we are unprepared, scared and confused. This course, Taking Care for the Caregiver, will help give you tools and tips to stay sane and healthy during a trying time. In the course, you will gain a clearer understanding of your role as a caregiver and expectations of that role. You will also learn about different responsibilities you will need to complete in order to look out for the best interest of your loved one. Finally, you will strategize how to manage your own stress to keep yourself healthy and strong.

This course is brief and too the point: after all, caregivers have little time to spare. Included in the course is a resource guide to help you list important contacts, information and a series of weblinks for support.
