"Senior Caregiver Support: Challenges, Choices, Care" - Mental health effects on the caregiver and how we as counselors can provide resources to caregivers as well.
by Mardy Chizek, RN, FNP, BSN, MBA, AAS
Caregiving for a senior family member or friend is a series of daunting tasks with no primer or guide. This presentation will address how each situation is unique based on the needs and resources of the failing senior. Family dynamics play a huge role as does the availability of assistance from other interested parties. Do not be afraid to ask for help. There are multiple sites and sources if you know where to look.
