Caring for the Caregivers: Magee Launches ‘Powerful Tools for Caregivers’ Program
WHAT: Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC
launches “Powerful Tools for Caregivers,” a program that teaches you how to take care of yourself so you can continue to care for your loved ones. The program equips you with tools to help you maintain your physical health and mental well-being while giving you the confidence to handle difficult situations, emotions and decisions.
WHY: Approximately 34 million Americans currently care for an older family member or friend. Caretaking duties can vary in range, from occasional monitoring to providing every aspect of basic living, including feeding, dressing and bathing. These responsibilities can take their toll, and developing tools to help maintain your own physical and mental health is critically important.
