Many people find themselves unprepared when faced with the complex issues associated with providing care for an aging loved one. The process of caregiving often requires ongoing assessment, flexibility, and knowledge of the health care delivery system. Caregivers may suddenly find themselves trying to sort out the different options for care, without a clear understanding of quality and cost. Planning can assist families to prepare more effectively for the care of an aging family member, mitigate an unexpected crisis, and ultimately result in better choices and outcomes.
This seminar addresses the following questions:How can adult children effectively and proactively manage caregiving responsibilities? What are the challenges faced by caregivers and the resources available to meet those challenges? How can adult children mitigate the stress of caregiving and enlist family and community supports?
Coffee, tee, water and cookies will be provided.
