The Caregiver Support Network is a planned workshop and webinar series for caregivers, advocates and service providers.

Ask questions, get answers, learn and connect

To make these workshops easily accessible to people across Ohio, we are hosting the workshops at several “local” sites. Each local site will connect to the workshop electronically and have on-site facilitators to lead conversations about each topic.

Webinars are being planned for Spring and Summer 2020, details and information will be posted here by mid-April.

The Caregiver Support Network is a collaboration between Ohio AgrAbility, OSU Extension, OSU College of Nursing Martha S. Pitzer Center for Women, Children and Youth, and Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities.

 

Ohio AgrAbility:

The Ohio AgrAbility Program is part of a national program from the U.S. Department of Agriculture that promotes independence for people in agriculture who want to continue to farm after experiencing a disabling condition. The Ohio State University has partnered with Easter Seals to help bring this program to you at the local level. Our Program’s goal is to provide education, resources, and technical assistance to those individuals and their families so they may continue to be successful in agriculture.
