Practical Strategies for Lowering Caregiver Stress

The Pennsylvania Department of Aging has produced a video for caregivers of older adults. 

Caregivers of older adults often experience high levels of strees that put them at risk of physical and mental health problems. 

The video features Dr. Steven H. Zarit, a distinguished professor and head of the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at the Pennsylvania State University.  Dr. Zarit  describes some successful methods of lowering caregiver stress and what a family caregiver caring for a person with dementia needs to know. 

The video is available on the Pennsylvania Department of Aging's website at www.aging.state.pa.us or by clicking on this link
