Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TAYLOR, Mich. - Sep 07, 2017 - Caregivers provide a vital role in the health and wellbeing of the individuals entrusted in their care. In an effort to provide information and support to care givers in Wayne, County, the Senior Alliance, Area Agency on Aging 1C is offering an education and resource fair. The Caregiver conference will kick off with a caregiver resource fair followed by the keynote speaker Dr. Gwendolyn Graddy-Dandby, who will be presenting on “Keeping Care in Caregiving: Managing Alzheimers” which focuses on caring for someone who either does not want care or who does not recognize they are being care for. The Senior Alliance caregivers conference will conclude with informational workshops.
“At the Senior Alliance we provide information and resources to support caregivers. We believe families need information and supports to sustain their critically important role. With the aging of the population, our reliance on families to provide care for their aging parents, relatives and friends grows exponentially each passing year. The pressures of family caregiving can lead to an enormous strain on family caregivers, many of whom are struggling to balance work and family. Supporting family caregivers is one of the best long term care investments we can make!” according to Tamera Kiger, Executive Director
The 2017 Caregiver conference will occur on Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Wayne Community College Downriver Campus, 2100 Northline Road in Taylor, Michigan.
