Caregiver Resources

We are excited to be able to offer for loan the Educated Caregiver Three Volume DVD Set due to a generous gift from the Pearl Manor Fund.

The Educated Caregiver:  “A family guide to providing care for a loved one at home. Providing care for a loved one is one of the toughest jobs you can ever have.  You’ll meet others who know what you are going through.  From those who have shouldered it themselves, learn how to deal with the physical and emotional burden caregivers experience.  You’ll see step-by-step demonstrations of key caregiving skills you’ll use every day.  Healthcare professionals share vital information every caregiver needs to know.”

  • Available for pick up at 555 Auburn Street, Manchester, NH

AlzBetter a practical guide to caring for a person with Alzheimer’s and other related dementias at home. Please call 603-621-3619 for information on obtaining the guide and gaining access to additional on-line training.

At RecallCenter, we encourage safe practices when it comes to the health and safety of aging Seniors and their Caregivers. We recently developed a page that covers the ins and outs of caregiving and tips for elderly wandering.
