Workshop Series for Caregivers

By: Mary Ellen Nessmith, MPA

The Emory WorkLife Resource Center’s workshop series for Caregivers is designed to help employees and their families manage some of the most common and complex issues pertaining to caring for an aging or sick adult. Caring for loved ones can be difficult when working full time and handling daily life. These workshops provide caregivers the guidance and knowledge to manage these challenging topics.

 

 

The Caregiver Workshop Series will address matters such as meditation for caregivers, financing long-term care, grief, and dementia. The Caregiver Workshop series will offer some of the same popular workshops, but will include a new approach. In the first semester workshops there will be a panel discussion for funding long term care. This will give the attendee the benefit of three subject matter experts including: elder law attorney, Veteran’s benefits and Medicare/Medicaid. There will be an overview from each speaker and an extensive question and answer session. Each workshop helps employees in the various stages of the caregiving process by explaining the dynamics involved and providing education to empower them in their role as caregiver.
