Caregiver's 5 Steps to Self-Care First-Aid

Caregivers come in all shapes and sizes. 
  • There are family caregivers providing care for adults over the age of 60. 
  • Other caregivers are assisting younger adults with disabilities.
  • Still other caregivers are taking care of children with special needs. 
Regardless of the circumstances, the Caregiver 5 Steps to First Aid program (in partnership with the Nebraska Medicine Fontenelle Health Center, 5005 Ames Avenue, Omaha) gives ideas to assist caregivers in their important work:  helping caregivers realize:
  • You are not alone
  • Learn how to keep your home environment safe
  • Understand the importance of nutrition
  • Maintain your physical well-being
  • Allow yourself time for Respite
