DC Metro-Maryland ARN Presents:

Steps to H.O.P.E.: Building Health, Optimism, Purpose and Endurance in Palliative Care for Family Caregivers of Persons with Dementia

When/Where:    

MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital, Washington DC

Auditorium Ground Floor

Thursday May 23, 2019     12pm-1pm

Description:  

Currently, over 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and 15 million Americans provide unpaid care for these individuals over the long trajectory of their illness. As a result, family caregivers may experience loss and grief, leading to ambiguity in their caregiving role. Palliative care interventions are necessary to help family members cope with the progressive and unsurmountable grief experiences with these terminal conditions. A study team at Banner Alzheimer’s Institute set out to determine if the education of caregivers, within a support group environment, would reduce caregiver stress, burden and ambiguous loss while increase the reporting of self-care strategies.  

Webinar via the NICHE Knowledge Center Presenters:

Susan Favaro, MSW, LCSW,
Banner Alzheimer’s Institute, Stead Family Memory Center
Carol O. Long, PhD, RN, FPCN, FAAN,
Capstone Healthcare & Palliative Care Essentials;
Adjunct Faculty, Arizona State University College of Nursing and Health Innovation
