Elder Service Providers Annual Caregiver Conference: "Finding Joy in Caregiving"

9:00am-10:00- Brenda Avadian: KEYNOTE: From Crisis to Finding JOY in Caregiving

There’s usually one family member who steps up in a crisis. Whether your Mom, Dad, spouse, or need help, caregiving is the start of an adventurous journey that will leave a memorable mark. Will you survive, thrive, and even find JOY in caregiving? That depends. (Focus: The family caregiver)

10:15am-11:45am- I Need HELP! The Continuum of Care There comes a time along the road of caregiving when we can’t go on. We need to stop and take a deep breath. We need to refuel and ask for directions (help). Fortunately, we have options to help us fulfill our unique

needs. We’ll look at some of the Continuum of Care Options. (Focus: Integrating family caregiving needs with professional resources)
