Save The Date: Caregiver’s Conference

| January 28, 2012 | 0 Comments

Save the date for the 20th annual Caregivers’ Conference to be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. April 21 at a new location, the DoubleTree Hotel, 210 Holiday Court, in Annapolis.

Because of its educational and informational content, the conference has grown in popularity and had to be moved from the Annapolis Senior Activity Center in order to provide more space for attendees and exhibitors, says Mary Chaput, director of the National Family Caregiver Support Program at the Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities and the event coordinator.

The event provides in-depth information for family and professional caregivers. The cost is $15 which includes a continental breakfast and lunch as well as light refreshments during the event as well as printed materials. Social Work CEUs are awarded for an additional fee.

Also sponsoring the event are the Anne Arundel County Department of Social Services, Active Day Centers of Annapolis and Pasadena, the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Maryland, Gero-Resources LLC, Home Instead Senior Care, and Somerford Place Alzheimer’s Assisted Living. Additional vendors and sponsors are being accepted and can call 410-222-4464, Ext. 3043 for sponsorship information.

For event information and to be placed on a mailing list for this and other caregiver programs, e-mail caregiver_support@aacounty.org or call 410-222-4464, Ext. 3043.
