  • The caregiver-care receiver relationship
  • Expectations you and others have of you
  • Feeling responsible but not having control

Strategies for self-care will be shared, and resources will be provided.

What: Caregiver Challenges: Roles and Responsibilities

When: Wednesday, April 11, 12 to 1 pm

Kelly is the elder care counselor for faculty and staff at UC Berkeley’s Be Well at Work. She earned her doctorate in education from the University of San Francisco, where her research focus was on caregiver stress. She received her MSW from Catholic University in Washington D.C, with an emphasis in gerontology. She has been helping elders and their families for over 30 years.

This brown bag is the first in a new speaker series on health and wellness sponsored by the President’s Advisory Council on the Status of Women.
