AARP and Borders Join Forces To Kick off National Family Caregivers Month
Posted May 14 2009 4:31pm
November is National Family Caregivers Month and in support of that, I am helping AARP and Borders promote a program they are hosting. Below you can read about the event and the purpose, as sent to me. Please check out the locations and see if there is one near you. It sounds like an interesting and educational way to spend some time.
"Based on an expanded version of AARP' s five-step planning guide for families, which will be distributed to all attendees, these events will help caregivers identify ways to reduce stress, provide a better understanding of medical treatment plans, suggest techniques for keeping the home safe for loved ones, and assist caregivers with managing insurance and financial matters. The curriculum for these events was established by Dr. Dan Tobin, an author and nationally recognized leader on caregiving and health counseling.
I' m hoping that you' ll help us get the word out among caregivers by writing an entry for your blog about the seminars. The dates, times, and locations are listed below."
