• To gain information on various topics related to caregiving.
• To learn methods of coping with the stresses and strains of being a caregiver.
• To learn what resources are available to them.
• To discover ways of working together to reduce some of the frustrations and barriers they face in their caregiving roles.
• To share common concerns.
• To recognize that they are not alone—others share similar feelings and concerns.

About “Caring for You Caring for Me”: This award-winning, evidence-informed workshop series was developed by the Rosalyn Carter Institute for Caregiving (RCI).
