According to the Family Caregiver Alliance, approximately 44 million Americans provide unpaid assistance and support to older people and adults with disabilities who live in the community. Caregiving can be extremely stressful physically and emotionally. This year, the Elder Care Expo is hosting a special night-before preview specifically designed to support caregivers.
Vendor booths will be open at 4:00 on Tuesday October 11th representing more than 75 local senior care resources and registration for the event will include a boxed dinner and caregiving services.
The event will feature caregiver and gerontology speakers and sets the tone for the Expo the next day.
The great majority of borrowers from the Beverly Sharrer Medical Equipment Closet are senior citizens and we frequently meet their sons, daughters and spouses so we know how important it is to support caregivers themselves. This promises to be an exciting add-on to the 2016 Expo and we’re looking forward to seeing you there!
