Caregivers After the Holidays: Families in a Scramble

with Edward Harper, LCSW, Senior Services at Blount Memorial Hospital

January 13, 2022 at 2:30 pm

As families notice critical differences in the limitations of vulnerable members over the holiday seasons, that notice tasks them with developing a response.  It is in the months of January through March that family caregivers are processing what they witnessed and experienced. It is not uncommon for them to see their expectations of a working plan become altered beyond effectiveness. They are families in a scramble to bring balance and safety to their loved ones. This presentation will talk through some of the processes and resources that assist families in a scramble.

Edward Harper, LCSW, has been the coordinator of Senior Services at Blount Memorial Hospital since 2000.  He has been a practicing clinician in counseling and community services since 1976.  He has developed a direct care program that is specific to supporting the welfare of caregivers.
