Webinar: Supporting Family Caregivers of Older Adults through Times of Stress and Isolation

Over 34 million individuals in the United States provide unpaid care for an older adult. Due to the emergency brought on by COVID-19, caregivers of older adults may be experiencing new challenges and uncertainty in their roles and others may newly be taking on caregiving responsibilities. The emotional, physical, and financial impact of caregiving can lead to caregivers experiencing stress, depression, anxiety, and other health problems. Providers and health plan staff can play key roles in supporting caregivers, particularly during this time when caregivers may be experiencing increased stress and isolation.
This webinar will offer strategies for supporting caregivers and their loved ones, up-to-date information on facilitating access to health and social supports from which caregivers might benefit, and practical tips for addressing the specific needs of caregivers experiencing social isolation and stress-related conditions. Speakers will also include strategies that are relevant in virtual settings.
