It’s that time of year again, when millions of Americans find themselves in a caregiving role for an aging or disabled family member. For many, that’s what happens after heading home for the holidays and becoming increasingly concerned at the changes you observe in your aging parents or grandparents.
The difficult conversations and added demands of caregiving responsibilities can lead to heightened stress and family discord. Despite these challenges, with the right preparation you can develop strategies to address the needs of your aging loved ones and still enjoy the holiday season.
Register for Care.com’s upcoming webinar, “Passing the Turkey and the Torch: Senior Caregiving and the Holidays” to find strategies for eliminating the stress from your senior care conversations this holiday season.
Join us on Thursday, Nov. 19 from 12 to 1 p.m. EST for an informative seminar in which one of Care.com’s Master’s level social workers will address questions such as:
- How do I plan ahead for the holiday season?
- What are warning signs to look for when spending time with aging loved ones?
- What are some strategies to address concerns that will arise?
- How do I find supports for the caregiver … and the aging family member?
