Free caregiving series planned by New Jersey Advocates for Aging Well

Today in New Jersey, more than 1 million residents are serving as caregivers to family members or friends. 

While the roles may differ among families, all caregivers have common needs for support, training and recognition of their important role in our health care system.

As family members take on the role of caregiver, they do so with love and dedication but without training, skills or knowledge of many of the realities and tasks involved.

The New Jersey Advocates for Aging Well “Caregiving in New Jersey Series” will bring together experts in the realm of caregiving to discuss the needs of unpaid family and friends caring for older adults.

This series will help caregivers understand the scope of care they might need to provide, find support and develop skills to care for their loved ones and themselves, and identify their rights and benefits for family leave.

Broken into 3 sessions and held virtually on Wednesdays at 1 p.m., the series will include:

March 1 – Defining Caregiving & its Impact on Family, Patients & Friends.

March 8 – Finding Support & Building Skills

March 15 – Benefits: Family Leave, Respite Care, NJ Family Leave Insurance

Registration for the online events is required: please click here: Caregiving in NJ registration

This series is generously offered to all New Jersey residents with the support Parker Health Group, Inc. a not-for-profit, New Jersey-based aging services organization with over 100 years’ experience that is committed to empowering older Americans. Learn more at Parker Life.
