OLYMPIA - On Thursday, November 17, from 1–2 p.m., the WA Cares Fund will host a panel discussion via Zoom on Caregiver Mental Health.  

Providing care for a loved one can be a rewarding experience, but it can also be stressful, time-consuming, expensive, and emotional—especially for caregivers who don’t have a lot of family or financial support. Ensuring caregivers have access to ongoing support and resources helps reduce stress and improves outcomes for those who are receiving care and those providing it. Join our panel to learn about what resources are available to you or caregivers in your life.

Panelists are:

Panelists will provide an overview of caregiver burnout, why caregiver mental health is important, supports and programs that can help, additional challenges when caring for someone with dementia, and resources available online. There will also be an opportunity for discussion and audience Q&A. We encourage all to come with their questions ready!
