Pamela Nye, assistant professor at the UCLA School of Nursing, will speak on “When Help Is Needed: Managing Caregiving” at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, December 2, at the Palisades Library community room, 861 Alma Real Dr. The program is free and open to the public.
Nye will discuss how a caregiver can best help someone who is encountering medical difficulties and will address the following questions: 1) how will you know when it’s time to provide caregiving; 2) what if the loved one disagrees with your assessment; 3) who will the caregiver be; and 4) how can you prepare?
This program is the first in a projected series that will continue periodically in 2020 and is intended to support family caregivers. Subsequent programs will address topics such as anger and belligerence, physical care, memory loss and forgetfulness, and how to manage the loved one’s difficult behaviors both in public and in private.
Nye works with patients who suffer neurological and neurosurgical conditions and surgeries. A widely sought speaker, she has restarted her private consulting business where she works with local hospitals, colleges, clinics, and community centers.
