A caregiver is someone who has taken on the very selfless role of caring for a loved one. Many times the caregiver has the great responsibility of making sure their loved one’s basic needs are met which requires work and dedication.
By taking care of his or her own needs, the caregiver will be able to better care for those who depend on them. Powerful Tools for Caregivers® is an education program to help family and friends caring for older adults with long-term health conditions. Powerful Tools helps caregivers develop skills and confidence to better care for their selves while caring for others.
