Dr. Carrie Engelbright

Dr. Carrie L. Engelbright, lead faculty at Mid-State Technical College Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin, and the author of CNA: Nursing Assistant Certification and Workbook (August Learning Solutions, Sept. 2017), is a learned expert in the field of healthy aging and wellness of life. She teaches and raises awareness that a good way to age at home versus a skilled nursing facility is to maintain good health habits. This includes regular doctor visits, staying connected socially, eating healthy, and some form of daily physical activity. In an interview, Carrie can discuss how to effectively encourage older family members to maintain self-care, what it means to age at a healthy pace, why physical activity is so important, when is it time to get a caregiver and the best way to go about your search, as well as why there’s a current caregiver crisis in America.
