Presentation Topic: Prepare to Care

Did you know that 1 in 6 Minnesotans is a family caregiver? Come join us to learn from AARP about how we as professionals can better support family caregivers regardless of where they are on their journey; beginning to anticipate a need, helping to coordinate a big move, or taking care of a family member full-time.


1)     Gain insight into barriers family caregivers may face.

2)     Learn why having a good framework makes caregiving easier and how to encourage caregivers to develop their own framework.

3)     Obtain tips and resources specific to supporting older adults and their caregivers.
