Plug in to empower caregivers

Plug In at the Robbins, in its 10th season, returns to being virtual at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 13. with bioethicist Viki Kind, who will help us take look at how we can empower caregivers who are faced with difficult decisions. In September 2020, Kind gave a presentation about making end-of-life decisions.

 Plug In is co-presenting this free Zoom event with the Arlington Community Center. 
Wouldn’t it be a relief to know you are making the right decisions and doing right by the person in your care.

Whether you are caring for someone with dementia, stroke, brain injury or other cognitive impairment, you can learn how to use these four bioethical tools to make the difficult life, health and end-of-life decisions.

This free virtual event is not a one-size-fits-all solution but can be adapted depending on a person’s level of incapacity and the situation. Respect and compassion are the core principles in this decision-making process.

Kind is a clinical bioethicist, medical educator, hospice volunteer and author of The Caregiver’s Path to Compassionate Decision Making: Making Choices for Those Who Can't.

She helps people navigate these decisions inside of hospitals, and as a caregiver herself, she hopes to bring you more peace of heart and peace of mind.

I hope you will join us
