Seniors and caregivers are invited to the “Senior & Caregivers Conference & Expo” Friday, October 11 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. in Prescott Valley. This free event is sponsored by the Senior Connection, whose goal is to connect seniors and family caregivers with providers of products, services and support they may need.
The purpose of the Conference & Expo is to provide one central location where the public can learn about issues facing them in their role as a senior or caregiver, and speak with representatives from local companies that may be of help.
Presentations by local experts will occur on the hour, starting at 10am, on some of the most important issues related to the challenges of being a senior or caregiver. The schedule is as follows: 10am “Surviving Today’s Healthcare System – How to Become Your Own Advocate” with Bonnie Shimko – Arizona Care Management Solutions; 11am “Loneliness…The Silent Epidemic” with Sam Downing, MD; Noon “Stem Cell Therapy – New Hope or Snake Oil?” with Wayne Bennett, DC – Bennett Clinic; 1pm “Legal Issues for Caregivers” with Chip McLaughlin – Law Offices of Chester McLaughlin, P.C.; 2pm “Finding Hope Through Hospice” with Kelly Paradis, Good Samaritan Society Hospice.
In addition to the presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to speak with representatives from approximately 60 local Senior Resource Providers who will have information booths with literature about their products and services. Exhibitors represent a wide range of local resources, including in-home care assistance, independent and assisted living options, hospice care, legal and financial help, and health and fitness, to name just a few.
The event will occur at Liberty Traditional School, 3300 N Lake Valley Road in Prescott Valley. Admission is free and attendees may stay for all or part of the day, as their schedule allows. RSVPs are not necessary.
