Adult Well-Being Services Offers Valuable Resources for Caregivers

Four conferences scheduled for Wayne County this spring

DETROIT, April 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Adult Well-Being Services will host four conferences in Detroit and western Wayne County this spring to provide vital information and critical support to persons caring for older adults.

The caregiving conferences will provide caregivers with information on issues ranging from legal and financial concerns to home health care, prescription assistance and long term care. They will also offer information on respite care, adult day care and support groups to help ease the emotional strain on family members and individuals providing care for seniors who require it.

"Caregivers often neglect their own care and that is why these conferences are so important," said Christine Goldberg, Caregiver Support Staff of Adult Well-Being Services. "The stress of caring for persons with dementia has been shown to impact a person's immune system for up to three years after their care giving ends, increasing the chances of developing a chronic illness themselves."

It is estimated that more than 50 million people in the United States are caring for an aged family member or friend with a chronic illness or disability. Caregiver's ages range from their 30s to their late 80s and are typically unpaid. According to the National Alliance for Caregivers and American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) these caregivers are ill prepared for their role and receive little or no support.

Oakwood Hospital Community Health will provide health screenings at all four conferences, with free blood pressure screenings and glucose and cholesterol tests. There will be experts available to talk about Alzheimer's and related dementias, nutrition for older adults and caregiver stress. There will also be representatives from the Medicare/Medicaid Assistance Program to assist with Medicare/Medic
