SDSU Extension hosts free webinar June 12

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Gerontologists from SDSU Extension and North Dakota State University Extension are partnering to host a free webinar June 12, 2019. The webinar begins at 11 a.m. MDT/Noon CDT.

“This webinar will discuss caring for an older loved one, common stressors for family caregivers, strategies to manage stress, and resources/services available to help family caregivers,” explained Leacey Brown, SDSU Extension Gerontology Field Specialist.

Brown explained that one out of every six South Dakotans provides regular care or assistance to a friend or family member. “These individuals are often balancing many different obligations such as children, employment, school, etc.,” Brown said. “As a result, it can be difficult to make time for educational opportunities that can help increase their knowledge to help themselves and the person they provide assistance.”

Because of the challenge’s family caregivers have attending educational events, SDSU Extension and North Dakota State University Extension decided to deliver valuable information via webinar.
