To place or not to place
May 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Deciding if, when and where to place a loved one in out-of-home care can be a heart wrenching experience. Many family caregivers continue providing care far beyond their physical and emotional capabilities before they even consider long-term placement of their impaired relative. Placement may become the most realistic way to provide the best level of care and the only way to relieve a caregivers overwhelming burden.
It is important to remember caregiving does not end after a loved one is placed. The caregiving role changes but does not end after placement.
