Nonprofit in Brief: 3rd annual Quad Cities Caregiver Symposium on June 20
3rd annual Quad Cities Caregiver Symposium on June 20
The third annual Quad Cities Caregiver Symposium will be held on Thursday, June 20, with registration beginning at 9:45 a.m. in the Prescott Valley Public Library Crystal Room, 7401 Skoog Blvd., Prescott Valley. Check out the exhibits before the program begins at 10:15 a.m.
This free symposium is open to the public and will feature local professionals, service providers, and networking with other family caregivers. This year’s focus will be to provide important information to help decrease family caregiver stress by offering invaluable presentations by NACOG Area Agency on Aging Program Coordinators, AARP Arizona, and information about financial assistance options. Family caregivers are at-risk for job loss, health decline, and isolation while taking on the immense unpaid responsibility of caring for a loved one, friend, neighbor, parent, spouse or child.
Learn more about resources in your community that may help you in finding balance. Lunch will be provided by AARP Arizona. To register, call Lita Nelson at 928-213-5255.
