Caregiver Conference

May 2, 2014 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

$25
Conversations in Caregiving

This conference is designed with you, the caregiver, in mind.

Enhance your understanding of the role of caregiving and earn skills and expertise that will make your job easier and more beneficial for you and those you care for.


Caregiving

Rosalynn Carter states there are only four kinds of people in this world:

1
Those who have been caregivers
2
Those who currently are caregivers
3
Those who will be caregivers
4
Those who will need caregivers

Caregiving touches most families in different ways – different health conditions; different situations; even different cultures.

TCOG’s Area Agency on Aging has partnered with local and state professionals specializing in care giving in an ongoing effort to bring you information and tools to be a healthier caregiver.
