Best Practices: Caregiver Training & Education

Training and education for caregivers has been found to be tremendously helpful in providing information to both help care for loved ones while also making sure caregivers are taking care of themselves. Numerous research studies have shown that training can be effective in reducing caregiver stress, anxiety, and help the caregiver develop a better relationship with the care recipient. Specifically, support interventions with caregivers can reduce caregiver stress and improve patient care (Aksoydan, 2019; Chen, 2010).
