Caregiving 101

Whether you are new to caregiving or have lots of experience, this live session will give you practical advice about the keys to caring for yourself so you can be there for others. Psychology Professor Cindy Bergeman will be joined by neuroscience and behavior Professor Nancy Michael in a discussion about first steps for new caregivers, caring alongside siblings or a spouse, how to ask for support, and what resources/skills building caregivers need to know about. They will also discuss what the experience of care-receiving is like, how to understand the ways receiving care from others with grace is a gift to the caregiver and how we strengthen connections with our loved ones through caregiving and care-receiving.

Seasons of Change: Care & Support for Yourself & Others is co-sponsored by Notre Dame Senior Alumni, Notre Dame Women Connect, and the Notre Dame Class of 1983.
