New Handbook Provides Helpful Information About Family Caregiving
Across Pennsylvania, more than 1.6 million Pennsylvanians are caring for older parents, spouses, or other loved ones, assisting them to live independently rather than in one of the Commonwealth’s long-term, institutional nursing homes, according to the PA Homecare Association. Dedicated family and friends are providing $20 billion annually in uncompensated care allowing seniors to safely live at home and in their community. The Association is making available “Secrets No One Told You About Family Caregiving,” a 48-page handbook featuring tips, tricks, and helpful hints for family members caring for a loved one. Obtain your copy by calling 1-800-382-1211.
You can also advance the level of care delivered through 59 free online video training courses (you can download the flyer) offered by the association.
