Look for caregivers guidance

8715_39_preview.jpg

 

 

When you become a caregiver, you suddenly have a million questions. How are you supposed to take care of another adult? What should he be eating? Can she still drive? Get some answers.

 

Check into local resources for caregivers. Some organizations -- like the Red Cross, the National Family Caregivers Association, or the local Area Agency on Aging -- may offer classes in caregiving that could be invaluable.

 

You could also find a geriatric caseworker or geriatric care manager who can help identify your problems and resolve them.

Hello! I am Deidre Edwards, RN, Author, Speaker, and Retired National Board Certified Teacher/Career and Technical Education - Health Sciences.

 

Once upon a time, pre-COVID-19, I hosted in-person Caregiver Workshops. Those may resume in the future; but for now, I am focusing on releasing online classes.

 

During Caregiver Emotions presentations, participants appreciate learning they are not alone in their experiences, and there are approaches and techniques that would assist them on their emotional and physical journeys as caregivers.

 

My first online offering, therefore, is to support all caregivers with a FREE course Exploring Caregiver Emotions. Caregivers will learn that their confusing emotions do not make them bad people, but that their emotions are valid and normal. Daily coping skills and techniques are shared that can assist caregivers in restoring an inner balance.

 

This course is a complement to my book, Toolkit for Caregivers which assists readers through the skills, tips, and wisdom needed to become more confident as a caregiver to a loved one. 

 

My goal is to provide a helping hand to overwhelmed caregivers.
