It’s easy to get lost in the maze of caregiving decisions and challenges. Gaining insights and resources can help you navigate with less stress. Join Joyce Pelletier, a licensed clinical professional counselor from Cigna EAP, for tips on partnering with your elder to determine their needs. Review a variety of living arrangements and what to keep in mind when making a choice. Learn about key financial, legal, and medical advance planning documents that can bring peace of mind, and discuss the invaluable role that support, connection, and self-care play in the sometimes challenging role of caregiver.
