Caregivers are often not trained or properly equipped to manage the day-to-day needs of the person under their care. Caregiver training emphasizes the skills needed to provide quality care and encourages self-monitoring of caregiver stress and strain.
We invite you to explore the resources on this page about caregiver training. We also encourage you to access the peer-to-peer exchange if you would like to post a question or comment for response from other website users.
