CareWalks

If you’re one of the millions of Americans who dedicate much of their daily lives to caring for a family member, it may seem overwhelming to balance the demands of caregiving, family, work, and caring for yourself. With the emotional and physical toll caregiving can take on the body, it’s important to find ways to maintain your own health. But where do you find the time? And how do you even start? Sometimes all you need to do is go for a walk. CareWalks is a podcast from Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel and iHeart Radio designed to accompany you on a walk. We know any amount of movement (even just a 10-minute walk) can help your body and mind. So while YOU walk, join our host Holly Robinson Peete as she walks and talks with other caregivers, health experts, as well as others living with osteoarthritis and joint pain. Learn how our own health and well-being is just as important as the health and well-being of those in our care.
