The live and interactive program will provide advice on how family caregivers can work with professionals to identify depression and develop an effective plan of care for a loved one suffering with the disease.
Caregivers will learn how to identify key issues and problems, locate needed experts and resources, and outline a plan to provide the best care for a parent. The event is free of charge to participants.
Web conference topics include diagnosis of depression, association between depression, anxiety and memory loss, understanding which medications are safe and effective, along with resources and tools for monitoring treatment and improvement.
“One out of three older adults suffers from major depression,” said Sheila McMackin, president of NPDA. “Our goal is to provide information to help family caregivers increase the quality of life and identify beneficial treatment and care options for their loved ones.”
The event’s expert presenter is Steven C. Fox, D.O., Medical Director, Wellspring Personal Care. For the past 30 years, the primary focus of Dr. Fox’s clinical practice, teaching and research has been on the care and treatment for the elderly and disabled.
