We’re all going through an unprecedented time in modern history. How could we not be turned upside down and inside out knowing we’re all a droplet away from getting infected? Self-care, disciplining ourselves to do the things that are necessary to our health and well-being, not to mention our immune system, is essential.  And for many of us, the challenges of caregiving a sick or aging family member are as complicated and confounding as we could have ever imagined.

This program, moderated by Michael Hopkins, CEO of Jewish Family Service, and featuring panelists Ken Druck, Ph.D., Rabbi Yael Ridberg, and Dr. Bruce Sachs, will focus on how to meet these challenges by upgrading, innovating and putting our self-care and caregiving skills and abilities to work.
