Caregiver Corner: Caregiving Tips for Caregiver Awareness Month
by Joanne Jarvi | Dec 5, 2019 | CARES
- Caregiving is a difficult job. It is important to reward yourself with respite breaks often to avoid burnout. JFS offers respite to caregivers to allow them time to recharge themselves so they can be the best caregiver to their care recipient.
- It is important to watch for signs of depression and not delay seeking professional help. Caregiver Consultations is a way for caregivers to work with a licensed social worker at JFS to create a person-centered care plan.
- Education is a vital part of caregiving. Caring for You Caring for Me is an educational workshop series designed to educate family and professional caregivers on topics such as self-care and navigating a complex network of caregiving resources.
- Seeking support from other caregivers is an excellent way to gain strength and feel less alone. Caregiver Conversations provides a safe space for caregivers to come together and share their experiences.
