Caregivers are not often asked about their specific needs, preferences, willingness and ability to provide support for an older adult. As a result, caregivers often don't have a great understanding of the complexities and challenges associated with caregiving. Often, a deeper understanding of these challenges can reduce or prevent elder mistreatment and abuse. This workshop will provide an in-depth lens about the population of caregivers in New York State and why family caregivers often experience negative physical and emotional health outcomes. Participants will become familiar with an evidence-based assessment tool known as Tailored Caregiver Assessment and Referral (TCARE) and its measurable outcomes. Participants will learn how to identify caregiver burnout and the value of utilizing a caregiver assessment tool in practice. Participants will also learn about resources for caregivers in NYS, including JASA's Family Caregiver Abuse Prevention Program.

It is strongly recommended to have your video on for all Zoom webinars.
