Caregiving Along the Care Continuum

  • Wednesday, April 3, 2019, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

This web seminar is provided by the American Society on Aging as part of the Home Instead Family Caregiver Support Series.

Today, the burden of care for aging adults falls primarily on family members. These family caregivers play an important role in the care continuum, providing more than $470 billion worth of unpaid care and support (Caregiving in the U.S. 2015 Report). As the needs of their loved ones increase, the caregiving role tends to change.

Professionals can help to make caregivers aware of the options for care and educate them on how their caregiving role may be impacted at each stage of the care continuum. Join this month’s web seminar for information, tools and resources on how to support family caregivers along their caregiving journey.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe the care continuum for aging adults;
  • Identify the caregiving role and how it can change over time;
  • List signs to look for when a change in care may be needed;
  • Describe the importance of self-care for family caregivers; and,
  • Identify tips and resources to support caregivers and prevent burnout.
