When You're A Family Caregiver

Support, Strategies and Solace - When it's Needed Most

 A Presentation For Caregivers, their Families and Friends 

You’re thrown without warning or training into one of the toughest jobs on earth. Dealing with doctors, medications, patient hygiene, nutrition, and countless details of caring for a desperately ill loved one test the mind and body to the limit. Isolation, fear, confusion, and frustrations large and small chip away at the spirit. As a caregiver, you share the same challenges and concerns as the patient you’re caring for.  But what help is out there, and how do you find out about it?

Author and speaker Karen Twichell knows.  She’s lost her mother, father, and brother to cancer.  Her husband and two sisters are cancer survivors.  Through her personal experiences, research, and hard work, she has become a highly respected expert in family caregiving.  Her practical, step-by-step strategies will empower you by taking the guesswork out of what to do next.  She shares vital resources that connect you with the information and services you need.  And her personal stories inspire hope and gently reflect the deeply emotional and spiritual commitment you—along with millions of other Americans—make when you take over the care of a loved one.

Karen’s audiences will learn to:

• Take care of yourself while caring for an ill or elderly loved one
• Organize and manage the process of caregiving
• Secure all available resources and assistance every step of the way
• Remain strong in the face of the often overwhelming emotional strain of caregiving
• Keep a treatment journal—a great way to reduce your stress
and improve services for the patient
• Find comfort and support from other caregivers
