Family caregivers are the backbone of community-based services providing over $450 billion of unpaid services across this nation. To support our local family caregivers of people with dementia, Jill Costello with the Edel Caregiver Institute is offering a workshop developed by the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving (RCI). The Dealing with Dementia Workshop provides tips and strategies for caregivers on best practices for caring for their loved ones and themselves.

“Most family caregivers assume the care of a loved one without access to needed training and education,” said Gayle Alston, Director of RCI Training Center for Excellence. “Caregiving for a loved one is a rewarding and loving experience. However, due to the physical and emotional demands of caregiving and the struggles specific to dementia care, caregivers often suffer high levels of stress and depression. The goal for the Dealing with Dementia Caregiver Workshop is for Alzheimer's and dementia family caregivers to gain a better understanding of dementia, utilize strategies to effectively manage dementia behaviors, and develop habits of stress management and self-care.

Caregivers who attend the four-hour workshop will receive a copy of the new Dealing with Dementia Guide. This guide provides over 300 pages of information and solutions to problems caregivers face every day. If you are a caregiver or know someone who is caring for a loved one with dementia, don’t miss this important opportunity.

Registration for this event is $40 (the cost of the Guide from RCI)
