Did you know that in the US over half of caregivers have been given care or
assistance for more than 24 months or more? Reporting more stress and less
sleep is one of their major concerns. In this program, you will learn the financial
concerns, assessing when your loved one needs caregiving, and special
caregiver groups. Learn the various roles caregivers play each day, and how as a
caregiver you can avoid stress that leads to burnout. You will be able to
recognize the physical and emotional signs of caregiver burnout. Learn self-care
techniques that will help along your journey.

All Are Welcome!
Fee: $15.00 - This program awards 1.0 CE credit to Illinois nurses, professional counselors, social workers, and nursing home administrators. *No fee for consumers/community members or those not needing CE credit or certificate.
