Dementia Caregiving During the COVID-19 Outbreak

JFS is hosting a series of free virtual community conversations to help San Diegans meet the many challenges of coping with the coronavirus pandemic. On April 8, we hosted a conversation on finding emotional support and stress management as a dementia care partner, staying connected to isolated loved ones, creating a safety plan, and accessing local resources for additional support. All the resources from this event are listed below:

Amy Abrams, Director of Education, Alzheimer’s San Diego

Colleen Cook, Dementia Specialist, Jewish Family Service

Tracey Truscott, Clinical Social Worker, Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at UCSD
