Effective Alzheimer’s disease and dementia caregiving requires skills and understanding that are not entirely intuitive. For many men, these challenges are heightened because they are not socialized to be caregivers. This does not mean that males aren’t eager to be caregivers. However, because of the ever-changing nature of dementia disease, caregiving cannot be approached as a problem to be solved. This webinar will discuss burdens specific to male caregivers, including skill-building, asking for and receiving help, and self-care. A male caregiver will join the presenter to provide a first-person perspective.
Molly Perdue, MA, MS, PhD, Co-founder and Executive Director of the Alzheimer’s Family Support Center of Cape Cod (AFSC). Molly’s care for her mother at home for eight years was the catalyst for her research into Alzheimer’s disease and dementia caregiving, and the creation of the AFSC. She has worked with hundreds of families and individuals navigating dementia diseases.
