We recently discovered a great caregiving video from the folks at Fox News titled: How to Care for an Aging Parent. It's an excellent dialogue between Fox News health expert, Dr. Manny and Stephanie Erickson, a family caregiving expert, and host of the Caregivers’ Circle.

Be The Best Caregiver You Can Be
In terms of identifying resources to help caregivers cope with their new-found duties Erickson says that The Alzheimer's Association is a great place to start. “They have branches in every state, and multiple cities. You reach out locally to that organization – Explain to them what it is that you're looking for, or just say I'm having trouble. They'll help you figure out maybe what it is that you need, and they'll be able to connect you with those resources available within your community.”
Laws have to change, better resources have to be provided because we're all one society, and we have to take care of ourselves. – Dr. Manny, Fox News, 11/22/2015
Give this video a listen, and let us know if you have any other advice for those that are caregiving for a loved one. We're all in this together.
