Family caregivers of older adults with dementia and a history of trauma face a number of unique challenges, including trauma-related symptoms in their loved ones that can be sudden, frightening, and difficult to explain; and fears of re-traumatizing their loved ones while managing their behavioral and cognitive symptoms during caregiving tasks. This webinar, presented by The JFNA Center on Aging and Trauma, a project of the Holocaust Survivor Initiative, will provide an overview of the intersection between trauma and dementia and of the unique challenges of family caregivers of older adults with dementia and a history of trauma, and provide examples of how person-centered, trauma-informed approaches can help ameliorate these challenges and promote the health and well- being of this uniquely vulnerable caregiving population.
