Webinar – Caregiver Resources

Date: Thursday, January 19, 2012
Time: 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Place: Online at http://infopeople.org/training/caregiver-resources
Cost: Free 

A recent study on caregiving reported a startling statistic: during any given year, more than 65 million people, (nearly 30% of the U.S. population), provide care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member or friend and spend an average of 20 hours per week providing that care. Other findings show that these efforts take numerous tolls on caregivers, including extraordinary time demands, financial burdens, and the physical and mental health status. Impacts on employers and the workplace are significant, in terms of lost productivity, reduced time at work, and increased health care costs.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Understand the spectrum of caregiving topics, from daily tasks to the issues and challenges facing people who are in caregiver situations
  • Be aware of caregiver resources for specific conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease
  • Be able to find resources regarding financial issues and housing decisions
  • Be able to provide support resources for the health and wellbeing of the caregiver

This webinar will be of interest to public library staff, including reference librarians or reference desk staff, adult and teen services librarians, and staff from organizations who provide health information to consumers and members of the public.

Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required.  Simply visit http://infopeople.org/training/caregiver-resources on January 19 to join in.
