Event description
NYSCRC seeks to raise awareness and empathy for caregivers as a long-term strategy for improving supports and increasing respite.

About this Event

What better way to understand caregivers, than to spend a few hours in their shoes. This active simulation allows participants to experience a fraction of the challenges caregivers face, day in and day out. Each participant will be assigned a role, and will have tasks, dilemmas and opportunities to navigate throughout the afternoon. We believe that this experience can develop empathy for caregivers, care receivers and agencies who are involved along the way. We invite you to join us in this simulation as a way of better understanding caregivers, so that we may then effectively engage them. You will be reminded why you do what you do.

Case managers, Medicaid workers, financial staff at human services agencies, nurses, faith community volunteers, doctors, discharge planners, agency directors, policy makers. People in these roles have participated in the caregiver simulation, and across the board express that anyone with a hand in the human services field should experience it.
