Share Support & Resources
Welcome to day 8 of the Embracing Caregivers Challenge!
26% of unpaid caregivers surveyed have received no information and/or practical support in the last 12 months. And just as you often put your patients’ needs before your own, 42% of unpaid caregivers surveyed put the health of the person they’re caring for above their own health.
You need each other. The patient needs both of you. And now is the best time to make sure the caregiver feels supported. Offer support and resources when you can.
Share these resources that may help the caregiver feel supported:
- 25 Organizations that Take Care of Caregivers
- A Guide to Taking Care of Yourself
- Taking Care of YOU: Self-Care for Family Caregivers
- Family Caregiver Toolbox
- Caring: Them and You
- What Do I Need as a Family Caregiver?
- Area Agencies on Aging
What other resources can you share with caregivers? Let us know in the challenge updates section here, our private Facebook group, or on Twitter, or Instagram.
