Alzheimer’s Caregiving During the Holidays

Cost: Free


Format: Webinar


Where: Online/Web-based


Sponsored By:

American Society on Aging

Description:

If you require ADA accommodation to participate in this web seminar, please contact Steve Moore at your earliest convenience to make arrangements at info@asaging.org.

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. The stresses of the holiday season can add to that strain during what is supposed to be “the most wonderful time of the year.” The bright side is, with some preparation and consideration, there are ways that family caregivers and their loved one with Alzheimer’s can still engage in the holiday festivities. Register for this web seminar to learn about how professionals can recommend a person-centered care approach to help family caregivers manage symptoms and positively engage their loved one living with Alzheimer’s disease during the holiday season.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Review the basics of Alzheimer’s and the stages of the disease;
  • Describe the stress and strain that can arise for caregivers during this season;
  • Describe a person-centered care approach to tailor holiday festivities to the individual living with Alzheimer’s;
  • Identify purposeful and engaging holiday activities; and,
  • List additional Alzheimer’s and dementia resources.
