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). All webinars listed are free. Here are webinars that may be of interest to caregivers in June 2017.

“Caring for a Loved One with Alzheimer’s”
Program: Nearly 60 percent of caregivers who care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia rate the emotional stress of caregiving as high or very high. A new dementia diagnosis can bring with it a whirlwind of stress, confusion and anxiety about what to expect as the disease progresses. This web seminar will offer a how-to look at caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. The emphasis will be on the care and dignity of the individual, to help them live a more fulfilling life and to help the caregiver learn how to better manage troubling behaviors.
