Are you caring for a family member by yourself? Are you searching for resources to support your effort?
Is caregiving becoming a stressful experience?
Are you trying to find help with the practical aspects of caring for an ill or elderly relative?
Have you suddenly found yourself as the caregiver of a grandchild?
Caregiving, a Subject Guide for health consumers, includes information about these topics, to help you find resources and support.
The resources described in this Guide discuss medical, practical, and emotional aspects of caregiving. The Guide addresses caregiving for children as well as adults.
Since this Caregiving resource guide is a publication of Healthnet: Connecticut Consumer Information Network, a program of the Lyman Maynard Stowe Library, University of Connecticut Health Center, it includes Connecticut as well as national resources when they are available.
Books listed may be available at your public library. If your library does not own a book you would like to read, the library may be able to borrow a copy for your use from a nearby library.
In addition, Connecticut residents may borrow books directly from other public libraries within the state with their own town library card.
Although advertisements may appear on some Internet websites on this Guide, the University of Connecticut Health Center Library makes no recommendations for these products or services nor endorses them.
