Meeting/Program Information

Program Title: Caregivers@Work

Description: Serving as a family caregiver requires our physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial investment. On average, family caregivers provide 20 hours of care/week. The
average duration of care is over 4 years. Additionally, 60% of family caregivers are employed outside the house. No wonder family caregivers are stressed! The good news is that an increasing number of corporations realize the implications of caregiving on their employees. Caregivers @ Work need to explore the resources and benefits offered by their employers to facilitate the caregiving journey.

Speaker: Jane W. Barton, author of Caregiving for the GENIUS, is a passionate speaker, writer, and listener. As the founder of Cardinal, LLC, she provides educational programs,
books, and blogs to assist people in confronting the daunting challenges posed by aging, serious illness, and the end of life. Jane is well versed in the areas of grief and bereavement, caregiving, hospice and palliative care, change and transition, and spirituality and health. She presents innovative, transformational programs to community members, healthcare providers, pastoral caregivers, clergy, funeral service providers, and national audiences. As the Caregiving Ambassador for AARP Colorado (2014-2018), she offers educational programs for personal and professional caregivers throughout the state of Colorado.
Previously, Jane served as Director of Education for a hospice and palliative care
educational institution in Denver, Colorado. She has also served as a chaplain and
bereavement facilitator in hospice and palliative care. Jane is a certified Spiritual
Director as well as a Certified Senior Advisor. In a former life, she worked as a
financial services representative and an exploration petroleum geologist and manager.
