Workshops focus on caregiving, preparing a home to age in place, downsizing and decluttering, and how to recycle or dispose of unwanted items.

The workshops are free and will take place online via Zoom. Registration is required to get the Zoom link. No product or service will be promoted or sold during any of the sessions.

The workshops offered include:

Prepare to take care: 9 a.m. Sept. 25 and 7 p.m. Sept. 29

The care journey can be difficult in many ways. At AARP Family Caregiving, we’re here to help caregivers get answers, connect with other family caregivers, and find local resources near them. No matter where caregivers are on the family caregiving journey – just beginning to anticipate a need, helping coordinate a major move, or caring for a full-time family member – having a good framework for a loved one will facilitate the process.

During this webinar, we will share a framework to help caregivers plan for the care of friends, family members, or loved ones. You will have the opportunity to connect with other caregivers, exchange tips and advice and learn about available resources.
