Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2012
Home Care Assistance, the leading provider of in-home care for seniors, is proud to announce the launch of FamilyCaregiverTraining.com. With approximately 75 million family caregivers across North America providing care for an aging or chronically ill family member or loved one, there is a need for practical advice and best practices to help family caregivers provide optimal care while also keeping their own well-being and quality of life in mind. By filling out the form on the website, individuals will automatically receive the downloadable version of The Handbook of Live-In Care: A Guide for Caregivers, the first publication of its kind geared specifically toward family caregivers. Lauded by health professionals and industry experts as the definitive guide to maximizing the quality of life for older adults and homebound individuals, The Handbook of Live-In Care covers such topics as activities for home bound seniors, how to give a bath, how to exercise safely and the psychology of home bound adults.
“FamilyCaregiverTraining.com is one component of a vast suite of educational resources and materials we are developing around the topics of aging, quality of life and caregiving for the community,” said Kathryn Zakskorn, Public Relations and Marketing Manager of Home Care Assistance. “From an upcoming webinar geared toward family caregivers on Caregiver Burnout Prevention to our senior wellness series of books to targeted, informational websites such as this one, we are utilizing our years of expertise and knowledge in senior care to provide practical advice for individuals caring for a family member or loved one.”
Home Care Assistance has been an advocate for family caregivers across North America, frequently providing presentations on topics such as caregiver burnout prevention and stresses associated with the “sandwich generation” phenomenon, whereby family caregivers find themselves in the taxing situation of simultaneously providing care for their aging parents and children. Inspired by the overwhelming feedback from family caregivers about the significant role that educational resources available to them and burnout prevention has made in their lives, Home Care Assistance is excited to be able to disseminate information to family caregivers widely through such initiatives as FamilyCaregiverTraining.com. Taking such factors as self-actualization needs into account, The Handbook of Live-In Care understands that a caregiver’s attitude can influence his or her loved one’s feeling about the world and that the caregiver and care recipient ideally should work together to help each other actualize and have the best possible quality of life.
“Our mission at Home Care Assistance is to change the way the world changes,” said Shadi Gholizadeh, Business Operations Manager of Home Care Assistance. “We take our commitment to being a resource and advocate for family caregivers seriously. We are dedicated to not only providing older adults with the high caliber care that enables them to live happier, healthier lives at home, but also advocating for the quality of life of the professional and family care providers who provide care day in and day out.”
