Caregiver Action Network Releases 10 Tips for Family Caregivers Infographic

(Washington, DC) August 24, 2017 – Caregiver Action Network is very excited to announce the release of their new 10 Tips for Family Caregivers infographic. These tips are simple guidelines to help the 90 million Americans caring for a loved one with a chronic condition, disability, or the frailties of old age. The updated, visually stimulating infographic presents information specifically for caregivers in an easy-to-use, memorable format.

“Caregiving is one of the most stressful challenges anyone can face. And what America’s family caregivers do on a daily basis is tremendous,” said John Schall, Chief Executive Officer of CAN. “But family caregivers can’t do it all by themselves. They need somewhere to turn for advice, resources, and support.”

The infographic can be easily downloaded and reprinted. CAN is sharing it with hundreds of disease-specific patient advocacy groups to help them support the family caregivers of their constituents.

These proven 10 Tips will continue to help caregivers better care for their loved ones and themselves. What’s more, because most caregivers do not have time to waste and millions of caregivers rely on the internet for information, each of the 10 Tips automatically links to one of CAN’s free online resources, making helpful advice easy and quick to access.

“The 10 Tips not only give family caregivers helpful advice; they also point them to the concrete help they need,” Schall added.
