Keynote Presentation: Caregiving During a Pandemic: What Comes Next?

Presented by Christina Irving, Family Caregiver Alliance
Caring for loved ones is rarely an easy task – but during a global pandemic, managing everyday caregiving responsibilities becomes even more complicated. Given the uncertainty we continue to face, a year after the COVID-19 pandemic began, how have family caregivers learned to navigate through these challenging times? Please join us as Christina Irving, of Family Caregiver Alliance, shares tips and tools for caregivers to care both for their family members and themselves.
