Being a family caregiver comes with many responsibilities. Serving as a caregiver may stir up feelings of guilt as families struggle with what is best for the person in need and how it affects the rest of the family. One area that may not receive careful consideration is planning for a caregiver’s retirement if he or she reduces or gives up employment to help out another family member.  Understanding your choices means knowing your current situation. This program guides you through finding and collecting that information. It will take time, but it will be time well spent.

Classes are recorded for viewing later if unable to attend every class. When you are done with this class, you will have a notebook created that will help you make the right decisions.
