Presentation - Our Family Our Way: A New Resource for Caregiving Families

February 25, 2022


  • Jennifer Heston-Mullins

When a person needs care and support, their family is usually first in line to provide it. However, family caregiving can be both rewarding and challenging—especially when there are multiple family members involved. Scripps Gerontology Center recently released Our Family, Our Way, a communication and care coordination resource developed to help families think and talk about caregiving. Our Family, Our Way provides carefully designed materials to walk a family through the process of holding a family meeting, where members can talk about what kinds of care and support are needed and wanted and how family members can work together to make it happen. This presentation will share information about Our Family, Our Way, and how it can be used by families and professionals.
