Education, training offered for caregivers

ROCKWALL, TX (July 5, 2022) Learning more about the illness that your loved one is experiencing, or how to handle stress, can be helpful for caregivers. The North Central Texas Area Agency on Aging 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.
