Annual Senior Caregiving Conference

Are you a caregiver for an older loved one?

Open to the general public, you’re invited to attend two great events in one full-day conference:

Workshop: “A Positive Approach to Dementia Care" led by Teepa Snow - $15

The number of Americans living with Alzheimer's or another dementia is growing fast. Every 65 seconds someone in the U.S. develops Alzheimer's. Nearly half of all caregivers in the U.S. who provide help to older adults do so for someone with dementia. Your caregiving makes a difference. Learn about Teepa Snow's positive approach to caregiving in these sessions:

  • The ABC's of Dementia and Caregiving Essentials for Good Care
  • Teaching the Importance of Humor in Caregiving
  • Techniques for Enjoying the Holidays When Dementia is Part of the Picture

Senior resource fair - free!

Attend as part of the conference, or drop in to visit a variety of Central Kentucky organizations in one place. Learn what local expertise is available, whether needed for yourself or an aging loved one—or for future reference or now. Resources represented at the fair include financial planning, legal expertise, housing and care options and more from 40 exhibitors.
