A Conversation with Dr. Boss: Stress, Coping, and Resiliency
Pauline Boss, PhD, joined Duet’s Caregiver Webinar Series for an intimate conversation. She discussed enduring concepts from her book, Loving Someone Who Has Dementia, with a special focus on stress, coping, and resiliency. As dementia progresses, so does the caregiving journey. Coping and grieving processes are ongoing, which can cause unusually high stress for even the strongest family caregivers. Being resilient means becoming more comfortable with the heightened stress and anxiety, and gaining new strength from the experience. View the recording below.
