Heathy Charlotte Alliance presents:

“Caring for the Caregiver”

National Crisis Here in Charlotte

featuring author Peter Wong of The Caregivers Toolbox

  • Have you been a caregiver to a parent, child, spouse, or friend this year?
  • Caregivers are often called on to be healthcare, financial and legal advocates.
  • Most caregivers are not trained in caregiving.
  • Family caregivers, who also are employees, make up more than one-third of the workforce. Caregiving significantly impacts the productivity of the employee.
  • Often at the prime of their career the caregiver may feel their only choice is to quit or go part-time causing financial turmoil.
  • Caregivers can learn to step into the caregiving role with confidence and know-how.

The Caregivers’ Toolbox helps simplify and accelerate the process of turning a novice caregiver into an extraordinary caregiver.
