Caregiving How-To Videos & Webinars:

coping, education, tasks

 

The "How-to" videos give detailed instructions on how to perform many caregiving tasks.  Especially when you become a family caregiver out of necessity, you may not have the training to carry out these tasks in a manner that will be safe for both caree and caregiver.  Lifting or moving someone can be done without putting either person at risk when done properly, for example.  If you need to make the bed while someone is lying in it, a video below shows you how to do it.

Just as important as knowing how to do many caregiving tasks is knowing how to cope with your day-to-day responsibilities while keeping a reasonable perspective.  Believing that you can do this important job is the basis for successfully managing it.  This is not to say that you won't have challenging days from time to time.  It means that you will handle those challenges!
