Caregiving for Individuals with Chronic Illness or Injury
Intensive Cross Cutting Poster
Stroke is the leading cause of long-term disability in the United States, with spousal partners often filling a significant role as caregivers after loved ones return home. Care-partners often experience increased burden and depression in this new role, and there is a significant need for improved education, services, and resources for these care-partners. This project describes the development of the GETCare program, which is a group education and training program for care-partners post-stroke.
