MARTIN COUNTY -- Family caregivers who want to find information on caregiving, coping, medical conditions, diets and more can take advantage of the free Caregiver Library at the Charles and Rae Kane Center.
Books can be checked out by leaving a name and phone number at the front desk.
The Caregiver Resource Library has books on topics including but not limited to Alzheimer's disease, bipolar disorder, cancer, depression, diabetes, HIV, kidney disease and Parkinson's disease. Just as important, there are books on eldercare and how to cope as a caregiver.
Three out of four American adults will spend time taking care of an elder relative. While at the Kane Center, ask about other Council on Aging services and support groups that might make being a caregiver easier.
If you cannot always find answers to your caregiving questions through the Internet, rediscover the value of reading paper and ink books.
The center is located at 900 S.E. Salerno Road in Stuart, and is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
For more information, call (772) 223-7831.
