National Alliance for Caregiving Creates Caregiver Mental Health Pulse Check Campaign, Seeks Resources for Family Caregivers
Yesterday, the National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC) announced a new campaign to take a pulse check on America’s family caregivers and their mental and emotional well-being.
As a part of NAC’s current project on advancing the mental well-being of family caregivers, they have opened a phone and texting line for family caregivers to call or text and leave messages in order to tell their story and share how they’re feeling.
The messages will inform policy and practice efforts to improve support for family caregivers and all messages will be anonymous. Specifically, NAC is seeking caregiver input on the following questions:
NAC also announced their Take Care Community site is seeking to add additional resources for family caregivers—especially in the areas of grief and loss. According to the organization, “Take Care is a website that houses resources beneficial to family caregivers, submitted by family caregivers and others from in the family caregiver community who have found them useful and informative.”
If you or your organization have identified, created or used helpful family caregiving resources, please share them with NAC’s Take Care site here.
