Course Description

Caring for another person, especially one who depends upon you for their health needs, requires a lot of energy, time, and focus. So how do you manage this important task while also taking care of your own needs? Too often, people who care for others (carer) set their own basic needs aside (health, nutrition, exercise) in order to take care of their loved one (caree). When this happens, you may feel burnt out, tired, alone, and even depressed. This is why we created Caregiver 101. This course will help empower you to take care of your own needs so that you have the energy to care for others. If you're the caree, taking this course will help you understand caregiving from your carer's perspective and help you support them as they support you.
