CareLinx and CaregiverMonday Teams Team-Up for Caregivers

We are pleased to announce that the CareLinx and CaregiverMonday Teams are working together to remind caregivers to be good to themselves, to keep themselves healthy and fit. Below are the first six of a series of Monday morning caregiver tips.

CaregiverMonday is the day dedicated to the care of caregivers. It is a weekly opportunity for caregivers to take a much needed break for their own health and well-being. Caregiver Monday encourages these individuals to identify themselves as caregivers for their own health and for their loved ones. 

CaregiverMonday is a nonprofit public health organization, affiliated with Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Maxwell School of Syracuse University. It's goal is for caretakers to take care of themselves, their needs. Research points to a "Monday effect", where Monday is the start of a new week, a time for new starts -- such as starting healthy habits.
