As a caregiver, 'drawing the line’ with family members can be uncomfortable and difficult, especially when there are conflicting perceptions of what the best care is for the person living with dementia.

On Wednesday, February 10 at 2 p.m. we’ll be hosting our online webinar “Family dynamics in dementia caregiving,” where we will provide strategies on creating boundaries and initiating difficult conversations with family members. We’re excited to be joined by guest speaker Jodie McDonald, registered social worker, psychotherapist, and past Executive Director for the Cowichan Family Caregivers Support Society. Jodie has over twenty years of experience working in crisis intervention, family support, mental health and community development.

In this webinar, we’ll be discussing and providing strategies for:

  • Navigating difficult conversations with family members about caregiving roles
  • Negotiating care responsibilities
  • Setting boundaries with other family members
  • Managing potential conflict in order to provide the best care for the person.
