PTSD in Unpaid Caregivers: Risks, Signs, and Support

September 15, 2022
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can impact family caregivers facing chronic strain as well as those exposed to life-threatening events. It is important to learn the signs of caregiver PTSD, so you can take immediate action to prevent things from becoming worse. If you suffer from symptoms like nightmares, feeling depleted of energy and joy in life, being excessively on the lookout for danger or find it difficult to provide care, you may be experiencing PTSD. Join Dr. Patrick McGrath, webinar speaker, to learn more about:

  • The nature and symptoms of PTSD and the tools used to measure PTSD
  • How often PTSD occurs in caregivers
  • The effectiveness of medical and psychological treatments for PTSD
  • What caregivers can do to help themselves if they have PTSD

All attendees who complete the webinar survey can enter a draw to win an Ontario Caregiver Organization Water Bottle. This draw will be held on September 22,2022, and is only available to residents of Ontario. Winners will be contacted via email after the draw.
