The first rule of taking care of others is to take care of yourself first. Caregiving can be a rewarding experience, but it is also physically and emotionally demanding. The nation’s 90 million family caregivers are at risk of health issues so there are tools to help a caregiver manage the time and resources needed to care for a loved one.
Here are just a few resources available to caregivers in Jackson County:
- Powerful Tools for Caregivers of Adults with Chronic Conditions
- Powerful Tools for Caregivers of Children with Special Needs
- Caregivers Support Group
