Greetings one and all…
Caregiver Holding Senior's Hand
Are you a caregiver in the Ogden in need of some respite, rest, and resources?  Come to a free educational series designed to help with all of that!  Starting Friday, March 16, 2018 and continuing every Friday through May 4, 2018, this conference will delve into such "real world" issues for caregivers, as follows:
family caregiving
Becoming a caregiver is an important but often challenging journey. When an unpaid family caregiver first starts helping a loved one, the caregiver doesn’t always know where to begin or where to turn for guidance.
Caregiving Resource Center
AARP Iowa is working with employers to help them understand and support employees who also serve as unpaid family caregivers. The goal is to identify resources that can help not only caregivers but employers, as well.

524,000 Oklahomans are family caregivers and we know they can use more support. AARP is here to help. Anyone can take advantage of our free caregiving resources, not just AARP members. Now, we're hosting a weeklong celebration of caregivers at Tulsa's Guthrie Green with resources and help for caregivers as well as opportunities to relax.
Medical and donor concepts
More than 520,000 Oklahomans care for older parents, spouses or other loved ones, helping them to live independently in their own homes. These family caregivers have a huge responsibility, and now a new law will make life a little bit easier for them. The CARE (Caregiver Advise, Record, Enable) Act helps family caregivers when their loved ones go into the hospital and as they transition home.

Wondering how to plan for what’s next in life?
In South Dakota, taking care of those we love comes naturally. More than 84,000 South Dakotans are currently serving as family caregivers to their loved ones and studies show that if you aren't a caregiver now you will either be one or need one someday. This silent army is taking on tasks like bathing and dressing, managing finances and transportation and even performing complicated medical tasks all so their loved ones can remain in their homes and communities - where they want to be.
