On Thursday, January 21, 2021, from 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM, I will be presenting Impacts of Dementia Caregiving on the Workplace: Solutions for Caregivers and Employers for the Avon Chamber of Commerce and the Avon Free Public Library.
This will be a virtual presentation. Pre-registration required.
Registration Requested by Monday, January 18.
In Connecticut 178,000 people are caregivers of individuals with Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, providing 203,000,000 hours of unpaid care. Half of all caregivers to older adults are employed either part-time or full-time, and many times struggle to manage their caregiving responsibilities and their job. In this presentation you will learn:
- Who Dementia caregivers are (you might be surprised)
- How Dementia caregiving impacts employees and employers
- Strategies to help caregivers improve their well-being and the care they provide
I look forward to seeing you there!
