Are you a family caregiver or do you know one? We have an upcoming event that might be of interest and we invite you to participate.
Dr. G. Allen Power, a world-renowned dementia care expert and author, along with Nicole Brackett, the Homewatch CareGivers Quality and Training Specialist, will be hosting “How to Support Family Caregivers” on Sept. 27. This online event is hosted on the Ask Me Anything platform from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. MDT.
“Family caregivers sometimes need additional support and I’m here to provide suggestions to questions about in-home care, chronic conditions and more,” Ms. Brackett said.
Here’s how it works: the general public can submit questions and vote on other questions submitted that they would like to see answered as well. For more details on signing in via Twitter or Facebook, go to the Ask Me Anything website.
We can’t wait to hear from you!
