Partnership with Institute On Aging to offer free, online sessions to caregivers
The Institute on Aging is one of Zen Caregiving Project’s ongoing partners offering us in-kind meeting and gathering spaces for our staff and volunteer teams. In 2020 and 2021, in response to the impact of COVID-19 on caregivers, Zen Caregiving Project and Institute on Aging partnered to design, market and deliver a number of free online sessions. Some of the sessions were open to everyone and others were tailored to the needs of professional caregivers. Institute on Aging provided CE credits for the professional caregiver courses. In total, ZCP ran 27 free sessions in 2020 reaching 1700 people from across the US and globally, and we continued to run free sessions in 2021.
