Caregiving from a Distance: How to Support Someone Who Lives with Depression
For Caregivers, Family Members, Parents, and Caring Adults Interested in Caregiving from a Distance
Aired Wednesday, November 18, 2020
Whether across the country or, in the time of COVID-19, the next town over, caregiving for a loved one living with depression who is not in your household carries special challenges. How can you gauge their wellbeing? Is it possible to provide constructive support from far away, to help them work toward wellness? Are there effective ways to communicate your concerns? The good news is that, yes, you can be a partner in care even when your loved one is physically distant from you.
In this webinar, presenters Dr. Sandra Edmonds Crewe and Dr. JaNeen Cross will discuss how you can be an effective caregiver for an adult with depression who does not live with you. You will learn how signs and symptoms of depression may vary according to cultural context, ways to help your loved one find and pay for treatment, and tips for overcoming communication challenges related to physical distance.
