There will be two keynote presentations during this event from local experts on dementia care, education and training. Family caregivers can get their pressing questions answered and obtain in-person counsel. At the last event, 50 local senior services providers were on hand to supply critical caregiver information to the attendees. They also offer expert advice and direction on a myriad of topics including senior living options, home care choices, insurance alternatives, elder law and help with government programs. A Benevilla C.A.R.E.S. Resource Specialist will also be on-site for anyone needing one-on-one support.
Benevilla has been helping family caregivers since 1981 when they started as a crisis counseling service. “The Benevilla founders understood family caregivers were bearing a heavy burden caring for their loved ones often neglecting their own health” says Benevilla President and CEO, Joanne Thomson. “Today, 30-60% of caregivers pass away from illnesses related to caregiver stress before the person they are caring for. That’s why getting family caregivers this type of support and information is crucial for our aging communities and their families.”
Reservations are required. Please call 623-584-4999 to reserve your space today. There will be a complimentary breakfast provided by Birt’s Bistro. Thank You to Bellevue Heights Church for providing the space. Check back often as more details will follow in the coming weeks……
