Family Caregiver Stress Relief
The responsibilities and challenges of caring for a loved one can place significant stress on the family caregiver. Stress can build up to actually cause caregiver distress, a situation where the caregiver may become more susceptible to other health risks such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and increased risk of stroke. To help family caregivers combat this potential for caregiver distress, Home Instead Senior Care has developed a Family Caregiver Stress Relief education program. This presentation will give you resources to identify if you are at potential risk for caregiver distress and lists of reliable resources to get help. Registration Required.
