When people hear the word "caregiver" they don't often think of themselves. But if you are taking care of someone you love, you are a caregiver, and you need support, resources, and -- yes -- resilience to make this journey. To help you understand and even thrive in your caregiving role, DPL and AARP are pleased to present author and caregiving expert Nadine Roberts Cornish, CSA (certified senior advisor and gerontologist).
Nadine, a family caregiver herself, brings more than two decades of leadership and advocacy on behalf of caregivers to her work. She understands the common challenges and joys that caregivers share, and she also knows that one's identity and culture impact one's caregiving experience. In this series, you will not only hear from Nadine herself, but also a diverse panel of family caregivers -- just like you.
Registration is required here.
This is a three part series. Come to as many or as few as you'd like. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
