CAREGIVING CAN MAKE LIFE CRAZY!
HOW TO KEEP IT FROM MAKING YOU CRAZY!

One of the definitions of crazy is out of one's mind. While caregiving is often a very rewarding experience it can cause us to feel, think, act, and experience life in ways we otherwise would not…in short, it can make us CRAZY!
Caregiving stresses can have seriously negative physical and mental health impacts. The stresses can take us out of our minds and out of the lives we had before we became caregivers.
Caregiving Can Make Life Crazy! focuses on the five areas of life—The 5 H’s—in which caregiving stresses can have major negative impacts: Heart, Health, Head, Home and Hands (Workplace).
Fortunately, there are practical strategies, tactics and tips that can help you handle the stresses and still have a life!
Also, new discoveries in neuroscience and positive psychology point the way to gaining control over caregiver stress. The good news is that you don’t have to let caregiving stress make you crazy!
 Caregiving Can Make Life Crazy! can show you a variety of ways to lower stress levels and raise your caregiver effectiveness. The program is focused totally on caregiver health.
