Support for Caregivers – What’s out there and how can it help me?

Description:  Rosalyn Carter once said, “There are only four kinds of people in the world – those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregivers.” Caregiving is rewarding but stressful.  A shift in roles and emotions is inevitable.  The discussion will cover the role of the family caregiver and knowing when services should be accessed, as well as providing some tips on how to use those services.  There are many resources in our community that can support family caregivers and reduce caregiver stress.  Caregivers will also learn about building their own support team.

Presenter:  Jane Eckels, MSW, LISW-S, has worked over 20 years with older adults and their caregivers in the Miami Valley.  She has led caregiver support groups and education programs for caregivers throughout her career.  Jane is an adjunct professor with Wright State University’s Master Social Work Program, and a Prevention Support Specialist at United Senior Services in Springfield.
