McGill Cares: Lessons from a Double-Duty Caregiver

Event

Join us on October 5 at noon for the next McGill Cares webcast to support informal caregivers. During candid, 30-minute interviews with leading experts, Claire Webster explores topics related to caring for a loved one with dementia.     

Lessons from a Double-Duty Caregiver

Zelda Freitas, MSW, is a graduate of the McGill University School of Social Work with 30 years of experience in the delivery of services to older adults, their caregivers and their families. She is currently Clinical Advisor, Professional Practice at the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal. Previously, Ms. Freitas was the Coordinator of Developing Practices in Support of Caregivers at the Center for Research and Expertise in Social Gerontology of the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal and a clinical supervisor for the Elder Mistreatment Helpline. 

Ms. Freitas is also a caregiver to her mother and father who both require around-the-clock monitoring and care. She will talk about her dual roles as an unpaid caregiver to her parents and as a professional social worker.
