Not in My Family: Working with Family Caregivers to Reduce Elder Abuse

Are you a Family Caregiver, who is an unpaid family member or friend, taking care of an older adult?

Do you often feel overwhelmed, stressed, frustrated and alone?

 

Through this new workshop, learn both how to protect older adults and enhance self-care by:

  • Recognizing signs of abuse or neglect
  • Staying healthy while caregiving
  • Staying socially connected with others
  • Improving communication
  • Accessing resources for caregivers and older adults

Links to the workshop presentation, video, webinar recording, and resource handouts and publications have been posted below.
