Overview
The role of caregiver, while often rewarding, can also take a tremendous toll on individuals both emotionally and physically. It is critical that caregivers look after themselves as well as the person in their care. This principle is particularly important for members of the sandwich generation who are juggling both elder and child care responsibilities. Whether participants are already caring for an aging family member or plan to take on this role in the future, this session will provide important information for them to consider.

Learning Objectives
At the end of this session, participants will be able to do the following:

  • Understand the emotions typically experienced by caregivers.
  • Implement strategies to make caregiving easier.
  • Develop healthy caregiving habits and positive coping skills.
