Here's more info:

The webinar will be presented by Dr. Jennifer Hoblyn, Professor at Stanford School of Medicine and chief medical officer at eTherapi, and it will explore the challenges that family caregivers face and provide practical tips that individuals can apply to improve their own health and quality of life.

Caregiving has rapidly become a second profession for many individuals; nearly one in three adults provides ongoing care to an elderly or chronically frail loved one. The typical family caregiver is a 50 year old female, often married and employed, providing care for her elderly mother and father. Family caregivers are often juggling commitments to their work, their children, their family and friends and their communities alongside their caregiving responsibilities. Furthermore, they often lack or do not know where to seek the resources and support system needed to manage the stress associated with their responsibilities; itís no wonder then that 46% of family caregivers suffer from clinically significant symptoms of depression and other forms of caregiver burnout.

Please invite others who are currently providing care for a family member or other loved one to listen to this information webinar on the symptoms of Caregiver Burnout and how to cope.
