Caregiver Self-Management Needs Through Skill-Building

Study Description

Caregiver Self-Management Needs Through Skill-Building

Caring for a family member after a stroke can be very difficult and worsen the physical and mental health of untrained caregivers. The Telephone Assessment and Skill-Building Kit (TASK III) intervention is a unique, comprehensive caregiver intervention program that enables caregivers to develop the necessary skills to manage care for the survivor, while also taking care of themselves. The long-term goal of this study is to offer training and support for family caregivers through an efficacious, cost-effective program.
