Caregiver burnout, caregiver health, protecting yourself as a caregiver, substance abuse awareness, caring for the dying. Pretty heavy topics, right?

These realities are part of being a family caregiver.

Part 1, on Sunday, October 21, 2012, focused on safety and education for caregivers.
Part 2, on Sunday, March 3, 2013, taught caregivers to exercise, relax, and create healthy meals.
