Chat Topic: National Family Caregivers Month – Supercharge Your Caregiving

Caregiver Action Network https://caregiveraction.org/national-family-caregivers-month chooses the theme for National Family Caregivers Month each year. The Theme for National Family Caregivers Month November 2018 is Supercharge Your Caregiving! Caregivers are superheroes. Managing medications. Getting to doctor appointments. Balancing work and home. How can family caregivers handle it all? Even superheroes need tools! Thankfully, new caregiving tools can help lighten the load. We will discuss the tools in CAN’s toolkit.

Our *caregiver-only* chats are live interactions. Chats are in a text only format — so, all interactions are done simply by texting and/or typing your responses. Our chats are conducted in a safe environment.
