Monthly Family Caregiver Education/Support

Jane Jensen, Human Development and Relationship Educator  

In response to Safer At Home Jane collaborated with the Caregiver Coordinator at the Sheboygan County Aging and Disability Resource Center  (ADRC) to facilitate the monthly Family Caregiver Education/Support group via a Google platform call in (audio only).  This allowed family caregivers to participate from their own homes. Along with the ADRC Jane researched and piloted the platform before inviting participants via email to register and call in utilizing built-in password protection to protect confidentiality for those on the call. Jane shared research-based information with participants and focused on resources relative to family caregiving in social isolation as many continue to care for loved ones during this challenging time of social distancing.
