Virtual Resource Kit: Relative Caregiving


A dramatic change may occur in families when a relative is called on to care for a child in need. There is often little notice and little time to prepare for this experience. Parenting a relative’s child is a unique caregiving role; it impacts the dynamics of the immediate and extended family. We designed this kit to offer links to services, resources, and perspectives that will help the relative caregiver navigate their new role.
