'2008 Caregiving Conferences' Come to Wayne County, Offering Free Workshops and Resources in Canton and Taylor Locations
Date:4/23/2008

Statistics show families who care for older adults need our support. The pressure of their ongoing role can cause increased stress and depression. With little free time and few resources, caregivers are often forced to ignore their own health issues

DETROIT, April 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In addition to their primary jobs in the workplace and at home, millions of Americans are taking on the additional role of caregiver to others.

Recognizing that caregivers need resources, support and relief, these organizations are coming together to sponsor the 2008 Caregiver Conferences in April and May once again this year: AARP; Adult Well-Being Services; American House Senior Living Residences; Brownstown Forest View Assisted Living; Detroit Wayne County Long Term Care Connection; Heritage Newspapers; Maple Heights Retirement Community; Oakwood Health Care System; and Presbyterian Villages of Michigan. The Free events will be in Wayne County in the cities of Canton and Taylor.

"The importance of offering support to caregivers motivates us each year to provide these conferences. Our survey of attendees reveals how essential it is to provide support, an event where they can interact with each other to learn not only that they are not alone, but that there is help and assistance available," said Chris Goldberg, a social worker, at AWBS.

The free events feature complimentary workshops, Oakwood healthcare screening, vendors, literature and information, door prizes, massages and Caregiver support kits. Below is conference information:
