New Program Will Support Caregivers

Caregiver Champion is a new program that will help family and informal caregivers care for themselves, reduce stress and better connect with caregiving resources.

Caregiver Champions will consist of six Caregiver Learning Circles, free two-hour discussions. Each session will have an expert who will provide advice on topics such as identifying caregiver burnout to ways to organization tips.

The sessions are currently being held in Penn Hills, Monroeville, Squirrel Hill, Oakmont and Upper St. Clair. In the fall there will be sessions in Shaler, Bellevue and Downtown Pittsburgh.

The program is an initiative of the Jewish Healthcare Foundation.
