Onsite Caregiver Support

Are you a staff or faculty member navigating the competing demands of your personal and professional lives while providing care for adult or senior loved ones?

Northwestern has expanded its senior and adult care resources to include onsite caregiver support.

Northwestern senior & adult caregiver support group

Looking to learn more about senior care or are you currently caring for an aging loved one? Join Stephanie Gerberding, MSW, LCSW, a senior care social worker from Care.com. who will provide a monthly one-hour session on various senior care topics. Stephanie will provide senior care education and resources followed by an opportunity for questions and sharing among participants. The group is an opportunity to learn, connect, and engage in facilitated discussion.

The goal of this group is to help caregivers navigate caregiving responsibilities; provide social, emotional, and informational support; and relieve caregiver isolation through shared connections with others.
