ROCKWALL, TX (Jan. 6, 2022) If you are helping someone with physical care, emotional support, doctor visits, shopping, legal issues, financial matters, or finding resources, YOU are a caregiver!
Learning more about the illness that your loved one is experiencing, or how to handle stress, can be helpful for caregivers. The Area Agency on Aging of North Central Texas and its partners offer educational programs that provide information to caregivers about a variety of topics such as disease, the aging process, home safety and caring for oneself.
Support groups give caregivers the opportunity to learn new ways of handling their responsibilities and get support.
Go to Family Caregivers Online to access the Agency’s web-based training program.
