Health Information for Caregivers

Employees in the U.S. who are caring for an older relative are more likely to report health problems such as depression, diabetes, hypertension or heart disease (National Alliance for Caregiving, 2010). It is imperative that as a caregiver you stay educated about how to lead a healthy life. The healthier you are as the caregiver, the better care you are able to provide for your loved one. Examine the websites and Caregiver Tip Sheet Caregiver Tip Sheet for information about activities and programs available to you that will support a healthful lifestyle.
