As part of National Family Caregivers Month in November, we recently held an online series to help caregivers. Watch some of the presentations below:
Prepare to Care
No matter where you are in the journey of caregiving – just beginning to anticipate a need, helping to coordinate a big move, or taking care of someone full-time – having a good framework to help guide you and your loved one as you make decisions will make the process easier. During this session, we will share a framework to help you navigate the caregiving journey successfully. Topics to be covered include assembling a care team, creating a caregiving plan, and strategizing on ways to prioritize self-care, too.
Downsizing & Decluttering
Learn how decluttering and downsizing can be a rewarding and liberating experience. Having too much stuff can impede people from relocating or getting health care in their homes.
