Presenting Kin On’s 2012 Family Caregiver Support Workshop Series – “Equipping You to Become Effective Caregivers”11/01/11
More than 65 million people, 29% of the U.S. population, provide care for a chronically ill, disabled or elderly family member or friend during any given year and spend an average of 20 hours per week providing care for their loved one.
As caregivers, we want to equip you with the right tools and resources to help you become an effective caretaker for your loved ones. Kin On has planned a series of workshops in 2012 that everyone can benefit from, whether or not you’re a caregiver.
Topics will include:
Understanding Health Care Decision Documents: Advanced Directives – Living Will, Durable Power of Attorney and Guardianships
End-of-Life Realities: Memorial Service Planning
Home Safety 101: Creating a Safe Environment for Your Loved One
How to Be the Best Caregiver You Can Be: Balancing Self-Care and
Caregiving Growth & Development: Embracing the Later Years Together
Home is Where the Heart Is: Resources for Independent Senior Living
The 2012 Family Caregiver Workshop Series is part of Kin On’s Healthy Aging Program. The goal of this program is to enable Asian adults and seniors to stay physically, mentally and socially active.
Kin On’s Healthy Aging Program provides opportunities for participants to maintain a physically active lifestyle through exercise classes and social and recreational activities; and to outreach and educate participants on health topics, nutrition and chronic disease prevention through workshops, seminars and health-focused newsletters.
