3rd-SPIRITSPIRIT SEGMENT- May 2

Topic: Caring for the Caregiver

Caregiving is a commonplace and often stressful role.  Dr. Perkins will describe both the challenges and benefits reported from caregivers, and the importance for caregivers to be attentive to their own health needs.  Recommendations for supporting caregivers in their role will also be discussed.
