Self Care for Families

The Wisconsin Foster Care and Adoption Resource Center, in partnership with the Adoption Resources of Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families, produced a tip sheet discussing the challenges faced by foster and adoptive families. The tip sheet provides caregivers and families with information about how to prevent caregiver fatigue, including taking breaks and utilizing respite care; participating in trainings and conferences; asking for help and learning about services providing support; and sharing experiences with other foster and adoptive families. A list of additional resources also is included.
