How Technology Tools Can Improve Dementia Caregiving (Online Workshop)
June 30 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Join Johnna Lowther to learn about Tusk, a care navigation tool that can help support caregivers who are caring for loved one with dementia.
1 in 4 Albertans are caregivers. For each person diagnosed with dementia, there are 10-12 additional people directly impacted by the diagnosis- providing assistance and/or managing care.
How do we help caregivers more effectively and efficiently find resources needed to assist them? Learn about a technology tool that helps caregivers navigate the system, access resources, and focus on their own health and wellness in the process.
Tusk, The Care Navigation Tool, provides support to caregivers who are on a journey they didn’t sign up for and are coping and managing as best they can. It acts as a central hub of information to guide caregivers through searchable service provider categories and educational resources. It also helps track the health and wellness of caregivers and care recipients to promote informed decision making.
