Many caregivers cannot leave home due to caregiving responsibilities. You can participate in a web-based seminar — or webinar — from the privacy of your home. Join either live or view the archived version within a few days of the live webinar (in most cases). Most webinars listed are free.
Here are webinars that may be of interest to caregivers in October 2016…
What do you need to participate? All you’ll need is an internet connection and a computer with speakers. Or you can watch online and use your telephone for the audio portion of the program.
Why register? We recommend you register in advance so that you’ll receive via email reminders about the webinar. And you’ll receive email notification when the archived recording is available online.

This presentation will outline a framework for understanding systems and the impact a Veteran’s illness or challenges can have on a family. We will discuss strategies for helping Veterans obtain the care they deserve as well as strategies for Caregiver self-care.
