Aging Together partners with other organizations for relevant programs and seminars that serve to educate or assist both family and professional caregivers, as well as to offer general interest topics. We also post non-partner programs from organizations we know and trust if we believe them to be appropriate. During the pandemic these are all in virtual format, usually webinars or through Zoom. Programs are listed chronologically with the earliest first.

Surviving & Thriving During the Holidays (for those living with dementia) Monday, December 14, 2020 / 10:00am
The holidays are often filled with opportunities for togetherness, sharing, laughter, and memories. But they can also bring stress, disappointment, and sadness. A person living with dementia may feel a special sense of loss during the holidays because of the changes he or she has experienced. At the same time, caregivers may feel overwhelmed maintaining traditions while providing care and this year presents even more challenges due to social distancing and the risk of serious illness due to COVID-19. Join The Alzheimers Association for an online discussion about tips on how to survive the holidays. In addition to examining caregiver burnout, this program will identify ways to create a safe environment for loved ones during the holidays.
