Navigating Family Caregiving Events Sponsored by AARP and Borders


AARP and Borders are hosting free Navigating Family Caregiving events at ten Borders stores throughout the country this November. These 90-minute seminars will provide information and guidance to family caregivers that will improve the quality of their own lines and the caregiving they provide to loved ones.

Based on an expanded version of AARP's five-step planning guide for families, which will be distributed to all attendees, these events will help caregivers identify ways to reduce stress, provide a better understanding of medical treatment plans, suggest techniques for keeping the home safe for loved ones, and assist caregivers with managing insurance and financial matters. The curriculum for these events was established by Dr. Dan Tobin, an author and nationally recognized leader on caregiving and health counseling.
