What resources are available to help? Hear from those directly affected and learn what you need to know, what you need to plan and what you can do at this beginning point of your caregiving journey.

Hiring a Home Care Provider: a Guide for Family Caregivers

Improving Care at Home: Challenges and Opportunities

Unpaid and low-paid caregivers provide up to 90% of the care provided to people who are ill and disabled but living at home. By some estimates, 65 million individuals provide unpaid care worth up to 470 billion dollars, more than all Medicaid spending. But, we do a poor job of supporting these “invisible” members of the healthcare team.

Conference Learning Objectives

1. Describe the diverse demographic characteristics of caregivers and the individual and social impact of caregiving

Taking Care of SoMEone Else

A workshop for those dedicated to the care of others—but who put their own health and social needs on the back burner.

One of the greatest challenges of being a family caregiver is maintaining one’s own physical and emotional health—all too often, caregivers neglect their health and well being. We cannot stop the impact of a chronic illness on a loved one. However, we, as caregivers, need to be responsible for our own self-care.
