Redefining Caregiver to Care Partner

Redefining Caregiver to Care PartnerIn recent years, MSAA and other organizations have adopted the term care partner vs. caregiver to help reflect the grown team approach people use to understand and navigate life with MS. Join us, as we present:

“The Partnership of Care: Redefining Caregiver to Care Partner”
Monday, March 18, 2019

From helping someone newly diagnosed learn about treatment decisions, to making accessible home modifications for a person who has lived with MS for many years, care partners play an enormous role in the lives of their loved ones. As a way of acknowledging these partnerships, MSAA invites you to our free, live webinar spotlighting care partner needs.

Presented by MS nurse practitioner Megan Weigel, DNP, ARNP-c, MSCN, you can learn about the importance of:

  • Understanding a care partnership between MS couples and the family
  • Establishing good communication skills
  • Learning about roles and responsibilities
  • Finding helpful resources and tools
  • Taking care of yourself as a care partner

You will also be able to post any questions you have to expert Megan Weigel at the end of the webinar.
