Take Care!
e-newsletter

Our monthly Take Care! Newsletter is a great introduction to the Caregivers Community around the country. Every issue is full of great stories, useful tips, and informative articles on everything from the big-picture concerns we have, to the individual challenges we face in caring for our loved ones, or practicing our own self-care.

Webinars On Demand

As a family caregiver, you know that when you need help—you need it now. That’s why we have videos on demand, available whenever you need them, where we cover subjects like How to Talk to Doctors, Understanding Medicare, and Resilience: Your Key to Can-Do Caregiving.

Links and Resources

Giving expert advice to family caregivers is kind of our thing. That’s why we created a Links and Resources Center where you can find answers to pressing caregiving questions and up-to-the-minute information you can trust—and the best part is, everything here has been reviewed by our experts for quality and reliability.

Caregiver Help Desk

The Caregiver Help Desk is a comprehensive support center you can access by phone, email or live chat. Live conversations with our caregiving experts can provide you tailored guidance on basic or complex caregiving issues, such as dementia, insurance, senior housing, health and finance. The Caregiver Help Desk is staffed by highly experienced accredited professionals who have been through their own caregiving journeys.

Bringing in Help

The truth is, sometimes you just need more help! While the skills and duties of home care personnel vary, all have one thing in common: they make it possible for care recipients to remain at home in a safe environment and, in some cases, to have more independence than they did before. Outside help also allows family caregivers to replenish their depleted physical and emotional reserves.

Caregiver Well-Being

Feelings You May Have

Nothing can really prepare you for the emotional rollercoaster that comes with being a family caregiver. Many caregivers experience feelings of anxiety, depression, and guilt. Just know that all these feelings are normal. Depressed? Exhausted? Feeling angry? Having trouble sleeping? Feelings You May Have is there to show you how other caregivers cope and maintain their balance, so they can be there for their loved ones.
