The Healthier Black Elders Center is pleased to present: Caring for the Caregiver

Did you know approximately 53 million U.S. caregivers provide care to adults with a disability or illness?
Did you know about 15.7 million adult family members care for someone who has Alzheimer’s Disease or other dementia?

Health educators Sean Knurek and Holly Tiret from MSU-Extension will explore the many ways informal caregiving affects a caregiver’s mental and physical health. They will teach the importance of self-care for caregivers, practice strategies for self-care, and share resources for learning more about self-care strategies and benefits.
