Are you caring for a parent, spouse, other loved one or friend? Many of us are doing the best we can to balance work, family and caregiving without even realizing that we are indeed, caregivers. Caregiving is even more challenging now during the COVID-19 pandemic. AARP Mississippi will present a webinar, Prepare To Care – Creating A Plan, at 12 p.m. on Tuesday, June 23, 2020. The webinar offers information and tactics for family caregivers. To register, click here.
The Magnolia State is home to about 500,000 family caregivers who provide unpaid services to help aging loved ones continue to live at home. AARP Mississippi is recruiting advocacy volunteers to help pass legislation in 2018 that could help caregiving families.
Family caregivers spend a great deal of time tending to their loved ones’ needs. They help with bathing, meal preparation, medications, transportation and other tasks of daily living. Considering the energy required, it is no surprise that caregivers need support, too.
