|Title||Promoting Inclusive Communication in Caregiving Families: How To Get on the Same Page When You’re Not in the Same Story|
|Date||Thursday, October 20, 2022|
|Time||10:00 AM Pacific (1:00 PM Eastern)|
|Credit||Includes 1 complimentary CE credit*|
In many caregiving families, one person takes on the majority of care and support responsibilities, without discussion about what works best for everyone involved. Some families need help to think and talk about care and support in an inclusive way. In this webinar, participants will learn how inclusive communication can help caregiving families “share the load” and how to access and use a new communication and care coordination resource called “Our Family, Our Way,” which provides free materials to guide families through the process of holding a family meeting, conducting a “Shared Assessment” of their arrangement, and creating a “Family Care and Support Plan.”
Participants in this webinar will be able to:
- Identify problems in communication that can make caregiving more difficult for families.
- Describe how the “Our Family, Our Way” resources can support caregiving families to have more inclusive communication and care coordination.
- Share where caregiving families can access free resources to help them improve their communication and care coordination.
- Explain how “Our Family, Our Way” can be used by professionals in their work with caregiving families.
