Everyone has felt the upheaval of 2020, but for caregivers the chaos may be compounded by the extra demands on their physical and emotional well-being. Caretakers are those who care for loved ones who need long-term care because of injury or health emergency. They may be parents, siblings, pastors, or adult children taking care of their parents. Often they spend all of their time and emotional resources on their loved ones, leaving themselves unable to care for their own well-being. During this course the caretaker will create a binder to use throughout 2021. The binder will contain a calendar, pages to document personal care, and journal pages. You will begin using this important resource during a five-week Bible study that will help you achieve balance in your life and care for yourself by eating healthy, taking time with Christ, and scheduling time to recharge. You will need a Bible, a two-inch binder, some way to download documents, a printer, copy paper, a hole punch, something to write with (pen, pencil, colored pencils, markers), and stickers that you can add to your Caregiver Planner.
