The holidays are a good time for family caregivers returning home to their loved ones to tune in to the signs that an older family member or friend may need extra help to remain safe at home. To learn more about those signs, register for the free Home for the Holidays web conference, moderated by a representative from the Home Instead Senior Care® network, hosted by the American Society on Aging (ASA), and co-sponsored by the National Family Caregivers Association (NFCA) and the National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC).

The web conference is being  offered on two dates and times: Tuesday, Nov. 15, at 1 p.m. Eastern Time, or Monday, Dec. 5, at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. To register, go to www.caregiverstress.com/familyeducation.

“It’s easy for busy family caregivers to overlook the subtle signs that a senior loved one needs assistance,” said Mahnaz Pourian. “But during the holidays, when many return to their childhood homes, the difference between your last visit and now can highlight those red flags.

“Signs of potential trouble can be evident in a senior’s home – such as spoiled food in the refrigerator and piles of unpaid bills – or personal indicators such as episodes of confusion or dirty and unkempt clothing,” Pourian added.

Being together for the holidays may reveal some problems that have been overlooked, or gone unnoticed, due to long distances or  busy schedules. The web conference will feature information about countering senior resistance to assistance, as well as resources that can help family caregivers and senior care professionals. We encourage you to sign up today!
