Family caregivers often provide critical assistance for loved ones with:
- Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia;
- Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities;
- Mental Illness; and
- Injuries and illnesses sustained as a result of war.
They help with daily activities – such as bathing and dressing, meal preparation, medical and nursing tasks, and transportation. But they can also face unique challenges as they care for loved ones.
During this briefing, family caregivers will share their personal stories about caring for their loved ones, and experts with direct experience with these subpopulations will also share information on the difficulties and challenges these family caregivers face.
*Light refreshments will be served*
