Please join OneOp Military Caregiving Wednesday, May 23 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern, for our free webinar entitled ‘Detour Ahead: Planning for Contingencies on Your Caregiving Journey.’

Like many things in life, caregiving is a journey, not a destination…

Even the best laid plans – or map, if you will – have unintended obstacles and barriers resulting in a change of direction. While the caregiver cannot anticipate every scenario, there are some common issues that caregivers may be able to anticipate. Too, knowing there may be detours ahead may be able to help the caregiver better cope when problems arise. This session will explore some common issues in caregiving and provide some tips for when these detours occur. We will also discuss some critical thinking/decision-making skills that can help caregivers take apart and analyze unanticipated detours.
