This course responds to a growing public health concern for those who are caregivers of people with dementia. With growing responsibility for ADLs and IADLs, caregivers find themselves in isolation. Social frameworks including the CARE Act and the RAISE Family Caregivers Act are designed to support caregivers. Practical advice includes learning how caregivers want to receive information and transferring information on medical/nursing tasks and medication management. Finally, this course addresses the role of assessments, mental health and emotional support, and managing stress, while advising that caregivers find ways to take a break from these sometimes-onerous duties.
