Acting as an informal caregiver for a loved one affected with Alzheimer’s
About the Study:
Each week, informal caregivers meet online for a 1½ hour conversation facilitated by a licensed social worker. During this 5-week program, caregivers participate in conversations about self care, caregiving techniques, emotional management, and navigating the complexity of health systems.
The goal of June Care is to drive help empower informal caregivers. That means lower stress for caregivers and longer aging in place for diagnosed relatives. Happier people and better outcomes.
