COVID and Care: Hope and Caution After (?) the Pandemic
October 14 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm CDT
Caring for someone living with dementia during the COVID-19 pandemic adds unique challenges for caregivers. This program provides simple tips caregivers can put in place whether the person living with dementia lives at home, in a residential facility, or care providers are coming into the home.
Participants will review existing knowledge related to COVID and people with dementia, explore potential mental health concerns related to prolonged isolation and entering a “post-pandemic” world, and discuss emerging research and trends related to COVID-19 outcomes in people with and without dementia. This program is led by G.J. Hodson, MA, researcher, former dementia caregiver, and current Alzheimer’s Association volunteer.
1.0 CEU will be provided to social workers, licensed professional counselors, and registered nurses at no charge.
