We are proud to announce that one of our MSW alumnae, Sheri Labree, recently joined the Care.com team as the Senior Care Supervisor. In her new role, she has delivered a number of high-profile lectures and webinars on the "sandwich generation" and important resources for caregivers. These talks include a Twitter webinar as well as in-person talks at NVIDIA, Palo Alto Networks, LAM Research, MIT/Lincoln Labs and Harvard University.
In her talks, Labree provides an overview of the changing demographics in the United States as well as approaches to dealing with tough topics such as end-of-life care, giving up driving, autonomy and self-determination. She discusses resources on both community based senior resources as well as the continuum of residential options such as independent or assisted living programs, nursing homes, including how families can pay for care. She rounds out her resource-driven talks with a nod to the importance of self-care for caregivers.
