Recorded at the AAHCM 2017 Annual Meeting
What’s funny about caregiving? Absolutely nothing! But based on her own experience of caring for family members, Elaine K Sanchez knows that it is entirely too difficult to take seriously all of the time. Her keynote, “Finding Hope, Humor, and Heart in Caregiving,” is based on her unflinchingly honest and surprisingly funny book, Letters from Madelyn, Chronicles of a Caregiver. You will laugh through your tears as she provides insights into coping with caregiver anger, guilt, depression, and grief, along with strategies for managing dementia-related challenging behaviors, including inappropriate sexual behavior.
