Description

Caregiver Consultation is a service that can help caregivers develop strategies to achieve a balanced lifestyle, allowing the caregiver to provide both good care and protect their own health. It is offered throughout Minnesota by professionals who are certified Caregiver Consultants. Consultants are certified by the Minnesota Board on Aging by meeting basic standards and completing training. Caregiver Consultation involves identifying a caregiver's strengths, needs and goals, and developing a plan with the caregiver.
