The following quotation is from a family caregiver:
 
"I am very isolated, can’t really leave the house and get very little relief. The friend that calls me the most is not the friend I feel most comfortable with. The amount of family support is minimal."
(A Caregiver Support Services Caregiver)
 
The term social wellness refers to the number and quality of social supports available to caregivers. Social wellness includes interpersonal relationships and access to support from family, friends, church, and community. 
 
Please join us on April 30, 2012 at 11 a.m. CST as caregiver expert Dr. Eboni Green defines and discusses social wellness as a component of the Caregiver Wellness "U" model.
