Even in ordinary times, more than 770,000 unpaid family caregivers in Maryland face a daunting set of daily tasks. AARP offers guidance to family caregivers, specifically to help them create a plan for those they are caring for.
Of course, these are no ordinary times.
Social distancing has complicated the lives of family caregivers, especially those with older loved ones. It has added anxiety and isolation to an already stressful situation.
Join Leadership Montgomery and AARP on June 10 at 11 am, as representatives from AARP Maryland discuss the impact of social distancing, advocacy measures to keep older adults safe, best practices for developing a caregiving plan, and self-care for the caregiver.
∙ Psychological Fallout of the Pandemic for Caregivers and the People They Care For - Michael B. Friedman, LMSW. AARP volunteer and Founder and Honorary Chair of the Geriatric Mental Health Alliance of New York.
∙ AARP Maryland Advocacy and Nursing Home Reform- Tammy Bresnahan, AARP Maryland Associate State Director for Advocacy
∙ Tips and tools for Caregivers/Caring for the Caregiver – Phyllis Meyerson, AARP Speakers Bureau Lead Volunteer
This 1-hour panel will be moderated by C. Marie Taylor, President and CEO of Leadership Montgomery.
