About the Course:
Dr. Brandt’s book provides a practical look at the emotional challenges of caring for an aged or chronically ill loved one. You will find expert advice plus personal glimpses into the lives of four “real” caregivers. This compassionate and practical manual will help you: understand what it means to be a caregiver; recognize the physical and mental changes in your loved one; deal with the dramatic changes in your life style; adjust your expectations for the future; handle your own emotional reactions; and develop healthy ways to cope.
This course is based on the book, Caregiver’s Reprieve created by Brandt, Avrene, Ph.D.
