A Caregiver’s Toolkit
Source: Successful Aging and Living in San Antonio
Resource Type: Documents and Publications
Focus Population: Family Members, Seniors, Older Adults
This caregiver toolkit was created by the Workgroup to offer resources to those spouses, family, and significant others who provide care for their loved ones. The success of most care plans—from hospital discharge to everyday care in the home—often rests on the shoulders of the family caregiver. We hope this toolkit assists new or experienced homebased caregivers to understand their role and provides information about essential support for the challenges caregivers may face. We know that family caregiving impacts the physical and mental health, finances, career and other family and social relationships of the caregiver.
