The Caregiver Journey: Caring For a Loved One Who Refuses Help

Caring for an aging, chronically ill, injured, disabled family member or friend is often described as one of the most rewarding and difficult experiences of a person’s life. And as rewarding as the experience can be, it is made even more difficult for millions of Americans caring for a loved one who refuses the help they clearly need.

In this Caregiver Journey Webinar, Matt Perrin from Carallel and John A. Schall, M.P.P., Chief Executive Officer of Caregiver Action Network, discuss lived experiences of caring for a loved one who refuses help and practical tips we can all use as caregivers to manage through this challenge.

John Schall CEO, Caregiver Action Network

John brings a combination of 25 years of bipartisan experience in the Executive and Legislative branches of government and his personal caregiving experience to his work as Chief Executive Officer of Caregiver Action Network (formerly National Family Caregivers Association).  John previously served as Chief of Staff of the U.S. Department of Labor from 1991 to 1993 and was a White House Domestic Policy Adviser to President George H.W. Bush and Deputy of the White House Domestic Policy Council from 1989 to 1991.  He served as Legislative Director for then Rep. Connie Mack (R-FL).  He also held positions in the White House Office of Management and Budget from 1984 to 1987.
