Health Talk Outline:
Throughout the caregiving journey, which can last from six months to more than 10 years, the role of family caregivers evolves–and so should the services and the support they receive.
The Caregiving Years describes the path that family caregivers take—from Expectant Caregiver, to Freshman Caregiver, to Entrenched Caregiver, to Pragmatic Caregiver to Transitioning Caregiver to Godspeed Caregiver. Most important, the stages—and their related Stumbles and Steadies—provide a map for family caregivers (and their travel companions, health care professionals) to navigate successfully through the caregiving journey.
A tip sheet will be provided for the participants.
