Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center to Host "How To" Workshop for Family Caregivers
Date:5/3/2013

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) May 03, 2013

The Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center will be hosting a "How To" workshop for family caregivers on understanding incontinence on April 25 from 7-8:30 p.m. The workshop will be led by Dr. Craig Vance Comiter, an associate professor at Stanford University Medical School.

As part of Avenidas, which is a senior services non-profit agency located in Palo Alto, the Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center in Mountain View offers two levels of daytime care for older adults—adult day care and adult day health care. They also often hold workshops for family caregivers to discuss issues facing aging adults and their care.

The “How To” workshop on April 25 will help to answer questions and assist caregivers with understanding urinary incontinence. Dr. Comiter will discuss how it is not an inevitable difficulty and should never be blamed on simply a part of aging. He will teach caregivers how to treat it and discuss the most innovative urology procedures.

The event is open to the public, and parking is available. Light refreshments will be served. The Rose Kleiner Center is located at 270 Esquela Avenue in Mountain View. Please RSVP to (650)289-5499. Free professional care for loved ones is also available so caregivers can attend the workshop; just call 48 hours in advance to make the arrangements.

About the Rose Kleiner Center:

They also have registered nurses, speech therapists, occupational therapists and physical therapists on-hand for their health programs.
