Research and insider tips about self-care to help caregivers be more successful

Research and insider tips about self-care to help caregivers be more successful

In this episode, I speak with Amanda Leggett, Ph.D., Assistant Research Professor at the University of Michigan, about her research studying caregiving styles that help reduce stress and increase success for caregivers.

Dr. Leggett is working with Alzheimer's Association Dementia Care Provider Roundtable (AADCPR) to develop measurements that can identify a caregiver’s natural approach to caregiving so that style modifications can be prescribed to help increase job satisfaction and reduce burnout.

Then I speak with my friend Jordan Gilliam about his insights regarding self-care practices that can help caregivers improve their quality of life.

And finally, we wrap up the conversation by talking to Ginger about her ideas for caregivers to take care of themselves.
