Some research shows that Latinas have the highest rates of depression among caregivers of older adults. They are often isolated and have few, if any, opportunities to share their feelings and experiences with others in the same position.
Beginning Saturday, April 18, the Elizabeth McGown Training Institute and mmLearn.org will provide a Spanish language live web cast learning and sharing group made up of Spanish speaking women who are caring for older adults. The session will be web cast live at 9:00 a.m. on April 18. It will then be posted for on demand viewing.
Participants in the live web cast and the on demand sessions can make comments and pose questions by using the ask function at the top of the page. Anyone interested in participating can access the web cast and on demand sessions by going to http://www.mmLearn.org and clicking on COD at the bottom of the first page.
For more information, contact Virginia Valenzuela, support group facilitator, at info@mmLearn.org or at (210) 731-1212.
