Self-Help Group for Family Carers (Консультирование и обучение нуждающихся в уходе и их семей)

Since many caregivers tend to care for their loved ones at home or other community-based settings without training or resources to gain necessary knowledge and skills, the Caritas Russia organized the network of self-help groups for these caregivers to be trained by nurses. In 2009, a total of 487 people attended the courses for nursing care in the home, composed of 60% of housekeepers, 20% nurses, and 20% non-medical caregivers. The caregiving information was also produced as a brochure.
