Adding Ho Ho to the Holidays: A Survival Guide for Family Caregivers Available at Caregiving.com

Holidays can be stress-filled for all families. But when a family is struggling to manage the care needs of someone with a chronic illness or disability, holiday stress is compounded.

Nov. 22, 2010 - PRLog -- For families involved in a caregiving situation, the holidays may become the catalyst for tension-filled family get-togethers. At the holidays, all family members gather, including Those That Do It All and Those That Do Very Little to help the family member with a chronic illness or disability. In the Holiday Survival Guide, Caregiving.com offers practical tips to help the primary family caregiver survive the holidays, including those unpleasant disagreements with sometimes well-meaning but always out-spoken and opinionated family members. And, the guide offers ideas on handling the Holiday MeltDown—uncontrollable emotional responses, such as crying, that the added stress of holiday can cause.

The Survival Guide also offers family caregivers an outlet to talk about new traditions they create and the coping techniques that work for them. The Guide includes podcasts which share ideas on how to find happiness among the stress and how to create, and stick to, a holiday spending plan. An archived webinar, "Say Yes to the Best Holiday Ever by Saying No" is available for visitors to enjoy at their convenience.

To access the Holiday Survival Guide, visit Caregiving.com.
