Happy #DigitalSisterhood Wednesday!

Today, Digital Sisterhood Network (DSN) is sharing information about digital wellness resources for women caregivers as a part of our Leadership, Lifestyle and Living Well initiative and participation in AARP’s #CareSupport Campaign. AARP is a nonprofit organization that helps people who are 50 and over turn their goals and dreams into real possibilities, strengthens communities, and fights for the issues that matter most to families such as healthcare, employment security,  and retirement planning.

AARP’s web site and social media presence offer a diverse portfolio of resources to its membership of more than 37 million and the general public. AARP’s Caregiving Resource Center is one of DSN’s favorite online destinations. Here’s why. There are plenty of great articles and tips that women caregivers can use to support their wellness journey as they care for their loved ones. Check out our list of favorite resources below.

Be sure to join AARP’s online chat on how to stay healthy while caregiving with Dr. John Whyte, author of AARP New American Diet, today  from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Click here to access the chat. Be sure to use the Twitter hashtag #cgchat  and follow @AARP.

Also, plan to celebrate National Nutrition Month in March by visiting the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ EatRight.org site and incorporating the “Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day” tips and resources into your daily life.
