National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center Webinar: Exploring Male Caregiving for People Living with Dementia
February 9, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Effective Alzheimer’s disease and dementia caregiving requires skills and understanding that are not entirely intuitive. For many men, these challenges are heightened because they are not socialized to be caregivers. This does not mean that males aren’t eager to be caregivers. However, because of the ever-changing nature of dementia disease, caregiving cannot be approached as a problem to be solved. This webinar will discuss burdens specific to male caregivers, including skill-building, asking for and receiving help, and self-care.
Molly Perdue, MA, MS, PhD and Co-founder and Executive Director of the Alzheimer’s Family Support Center of Cape Cod (AFSC) will present this webinar with a male caregiver joining her to provide a first-person perspective.
