The Center for Family Caregivers has developed educational packets, "Kits for Caregivers", that will help family caregivers of aging relatives throughout their experience--when they first begin to care for a relative, to when they've been a caregiver for several years, to when their role as caregiver ends. The kits, containing samples, discount coupons, flyers and brochures about products and services that help family caregivers and their care recipients, is now available.
The cost of each kit is $5, which covers the cost of shipping and handling. Distribution of the kits is not a profit-generating activity for The Center. Family caregivers will be able to purchase the kits online through The Center's web site at www.familycaregivers.org or by visiting caregiving.com. In addition, kits can be ordered by sending $5 to The Center for Family Caregivers, P.O. Box 224, Park Ridge, IL 60068.
When mailing a request for a kit, family caregivers should indicate which kit they would like to purchase: New, Seasoned or Transitioning.
Helps family caregivers learn how to cope with the caregiving experience through several programs.
