Caregiver Support Groups
Aaron Blight, Ed.D., is in tune with the struggles families face as they care for aging relatives. It’s the reason why he wrote When Caregiving Calls: Guidance as You Care for a Parent, Spouse, or Aging Relative.
Now through Caregiving Kinetics, we are pleased to offer author visits (in-person or virtual) by Dr. Blight to caregiver support groups everywhere. A visit with Dr. Blight will allow caregiver support group participants to engage in a meaningful discussion about their caregiving experiences. Caregivers will have the opportunity to read the book written especially for them, share feelings and insights, and learn from one another during an exchange facilitated by the author.
- A presentation from Dr. Aaron Blight at your upcoming Caregiver Support Group
- 10 Copies of Dr. Blight’s Book When Caregiving Calls: Guidance as You Care for a Parent, Spouse, or Aging Relative
- Question & Answer with Dr. Blight
- A handout for caregivers to spur dialogue and engagement with their loved one
Bulk book orders are available for when your organization needs more than the 10 copies that are included. Please reach out via the bulk order form on the book page.
At Caregiving Kinetics, we have experience being family caregivers, helping family caregivers, and studying family caregivers. We are in tune with the struggles families face as they care for aging relatives.
We understand how easy it is to focus only on the needs of the care recipient. When a loved one is terminally ill or functionally incapacitated, family caregivers often sacrifice their time, their resources, and their health in an effort to provide care. As a result, many family caregivers experience – but may not recognize – the physical, mental, and relationship burdens associated with their caregiving responsibilities.
We help organizations working with family caregivers through our family caregiver support services, which include: group speaking engagements; access to the most effective evidence-based approach assisting family caregivers; and custom project-based consulting.
