If you know a family caregiver, send them back to school.

…send them to www.familycaregiving101.org.  .   The National Family Caregivers Association and the National Alliance for Caregiving sponsor this excellent web site which provides caregivers “with the basic tools, skills and information they need to protect their own physical and mental health while they provide high quality care for their loved one.”  There are over 50 million caregivers in this country who provide care for a chronically ill or an aging family member or friend.  Often they  neglect their own health and do not acknowledge the effect caregiving has on their lives.   Take care of a caregiver…..send them to “Family Caregiving 101.”

  1. wonderful resource. I started a blog for caregivers of alzheimer’s, and as soon as I figure it out, I would like to link to this one.
