Caregiving at Home

Personal Enrichment

Offered through Continuing Education

@ Online

Caregivers — sometimes referred to as informal caregivers — are unpaid individuals who help assist others with daily living and/or medical tasks. Oftentimes, caregivers are a spouse, partner, family member, friend or neighbor. The work is important and often not easy. You’re not alone. Join our experts and fellow attendees who, like you, are considering the tasks of caregiving. Held at our Meramec and Wildwood campuses, this series covers a range of helpful topics to support you and, ultimately, those for whom you care.

Caregiving at Home or in a Facility: Which is Better?

The need for caregiving in the home may occur suddenly with an illness or injury or, as with chronic illness or frailty due to aging, it may develop over a period of time. A variety of factors should be considered when the need for caregiving arises. Join us to explore and compare home- and facility-based options when individuals need increased assistance with everyday tasks. Discussion about the range of services provided through home care agencies will include non-medical support such as housekeeping, shopping and errands, bathing and personal care as well as medical services like physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy and wound care. We will explore community services such as adult day care and respite care that may be beneficial to caregivers who wish to continue providing care for their loved one in the community. Discussion will also cover the different levels of facility-based care including skilled nursing, assisted living and residential care.
