About the Online Event:
Family caregivers of people at the end of life, especially those providing care at home, take on a role that is rewarding but also very taxing. Combined with the fact that they are losing a loved one, their health and quality of wellbeing often suffers.
In this webinar we will review what research tells us about the needs of family caregivers, what they have reported is helpful to them, and discuss ways in which health care might be better organized to support them.
