Practical tips for caregivers concerned about coronavirus
For the past five years, researchers at the Family Caregiving Institute at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing have partnered with AARP to provide a series of videos to support caregivers as they navigate tasks such as managing medicines and caring for wounds. The team at AARP recently published the webpage, “Practical tips for caregivers concerned about coronavirus,” as a resource to caregivers. The Family Caregiving Institute also shares this resource to help caregivers prepare and reduce exposure to the virus.
