Supportiv’s new Caregiver collection of articles provides tools for caregivers to create emotional change for the better, either within themselves, or together with the person for whom they’re caring.
Helping yourself as a caregiver can involve setting boundaries, applying for financial assistance, cultivating pride in what you do, defusing conflict, or finding some realistic way to take a break–however small.
Supportiv has collaborated with experts such as Alexandra Drane of ARCHANGELS, and C. Grace Whiting J.D. of the National Alliance for Caregiving, to provide practical insights on how to approach the seemingly impossible struggles caregivers face–often without someone to care for them. Titles from the collection include:
- Instead of being carefree, I’m a young caregiver. How can I be both?
- Unpaid caregivers: easing financial and emotional burdens
- Things you think you can’t say as a caregiver
- The impact of caregiving on your physical and mental health
- Maintaining your boundaries as a caregiver: go from guilt to glow
- Caregiver in need of help? Here are some options
- Courageous caregivers: being proud of your role
- Caregiving for your significant other: surviving the tension
- Providing care for an aging parent: navigate a new dynamic
