Focus on Aging: Resilience in Dementia Caregiving

Lightning Bolt   Zoom Webinar   Lightning Bolt

Please join the Focus on Aging: Federal Partners' Webinar on Monday, June 5, 2023.
The webinar will be held virtually and free of charge.

Caregivers provide indispensable support to those who live with dementia. They help to meet the medical and functional needs of these individuals, while also maintaining commitments to work, family, community, and their own health.
Many caregivers provide support on an unpaid basis, often over extended periods of time. Caregiving for a person living with dementia requires resilience – a capacity to adapt and persevere in the face of stress. In light of the growing prevalence of dementia in the United States and the necessity of dementia caregiving, research on caregiver resilience is critical, as are practical tools and strategies for building resilience among dementia caregivers.
This webinar will feature the latest research on resilience in dementia caregiving and provide real-world insights from dementia caregivers who are helping others to learn about resilience.
