Caregiver Simulation

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 morning. 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.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing MedicalEducation (ACCME) through the joint providership of the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry and the NYS Caregiver Respite Coalition and Lifespan of Greater Rochester.
