When Care Comes Home

Becoming a caregiver for someone in your family is an important role, and it’s also one that can be very challenging.  Maybe you were put in the role suddenly and without warning, or maybe the situation evolved over time.  Join us as we welcome John Schall from the Caregiver Action Network and Robin Santos from The Clorox Company.  They have tips, information, and resources every family caregiver needs to hear.


The Balancing Act


When Care Comes Home

If you are taking care of a family member or loved one at home, you are not alone. There are resources to help.

Do you find that you are taking care of a family member or loved one at home? Maybe the situation came on suddenly like a wounded soldier coming home, or perhaps it’s been more gradual such as caring for your aging parent.

You are not alone.

In fact, there are a lot of caregivers out there. Over 66 million people in the U.S. are caring for a loved one. Fortunately there is help.

November is National Family Caregivers Month so The Balancing Act and Caregiver Action Network (CAN), with help from The Clorox Company, teamed up to bring you the latest information and resources.

CAN is the nation’s leading family caregiver organization working to improve the quality of life for the 66 million Americans who care for loved ones with chronic conditions, disabilities, disease, or the frailties of old age.

CAN serves a broad spectrum of family caregivers ranging from the parents of children with special needs, from a young couple dealing with a diagnosis of MS, to adult children caring for parents with Alzheimer’s disease.

o CAN is a non-profit organization providing education, peer support, and resources to family caregivers across the country free of charge.

o Your loved one’s care does not always take place in hospitals, or nursing homes, or doctor offices, or medical clinics. Most care actually occurs in the home – and that’s a good thing.

o People are healthier at home

o Health care costs are reduced

There is no doubt that caregivers face many challenges on a daily basis including juggling the physical, mental and emotional stress that comes with attending to the daily needs of a loved one. The new Clorox CareConcepts line of cleaning and personal care products and http://www.WhenCareComesHome.com was created to support and empower them.

The website is complete with supportive tools, products, links to well-respected partners like CAN, as well as educational content. Through the Clorox® Care Council, a panel of caregivers, advocates and experts, caregivers can find a community offering guidance, perspective and encouragement.

Caregiving can have its challenges, from loneliness and tightening the budget to making home alterations for safety reasons. Check out this resource http://www.caregiveraction.org for important information.

“During National Family Caregivers Month in November, Caregiver Action Network celebrates the 66 million family caregivers who are front and center providing care every day. If you are a family caregiver, you are not alone and there are resources to help,” said John Schall, CEO of Caregiver Action Network.
