Omaha, Neb. – Home Instead Senior Care® franchises in Wisconsin are sponsoring a free Family Caregiver Support Web Seminar to provide families with information about caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease.
The seminar is scheduled for Wednesday, June 27, at noon CDT. Participants may pre-register at Caregiverstress.com/familyeducation. The program is part of a monthly series that has been developed in cooperation with the American Society on Aging (ASA), which deals with a wide range of topics of interest to families caring for seniors. Pre-registration will be required for all seminars.
“We are pleased to offer this continuing education program for family caregivers, designed to provide valuable information that can help better equip them to care for their loved ones,” said Jeff Huber, president and chief operating officer (COO) of Home Instead, Inc., the franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network.
“So many family caregivers are lacking the resources they need to cope with this fulfilling, yet stressful job. All topics provide the perspective of professionals who have background in and knowledge of the issues facing families caring for aging loved ones.”
Topics include balancing work and at-home care, senior cognitive issues and helping seniors with finances – all issues that family caregivers often deal with daily. For the schedule of additional monthly topics, visit Caregiverstress.com/familyeducation.
