Register for the N.D. Caregiver Series of Telephone Town Halls

Posted on 02/27/19

If you’re not currently a caregiver, you likely will be one in the future or need the help of a caregiver yourself at some point in your life.

Join a series of caregiving telephone town halls beginning in March hosted by AARP North Dakota. All North Dakotans are welcome to participate, especially those people who are currently caregivers, those who anticipate becoming a caregiver, and those who receive care from a family member or friend.

The first telephone town hall is from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 12. Go here to register.

We’ll cover three main topic areas: what resources are available and where to find them; caregiving best practices such as respite care; and legislation under consideration in North Dakota that would support family caregivers.

The second telephone town hall is planned for 1:30-2:30 p.m. July 16, and will focus on what a caregiver needs to know when someone is being discharged from a hospital. We’ll cover the rights of both patients and caregivers; what questions you should be asking at the hospital at the time of discharge; and how you can make sure you’re ready once the patient returns home.

The third telephone town hall in the series is planned for 5:30-6:30 p.m. November 12. We’ll focus on balancing work and your personal life with your caregiving duties.

Right now there are an estimated 62,100 family caregivers in North Dakota. And AARP North Dakota is working to help support them and those for whom they care.

All of the telephone town halls will be interactive, where you’ll be able to ask questions and participate in the discussion. We hope you will join the conversation during these town hall events.

To ensure that you receive the call to join the town halls by phone, you must register ahead of time for each one. Then you will be called at the start of the town hall. To register, go to https://vekeo.com/aarpnorthdakota/#event-24833.
