Caregiver Conference

Event occured on Fri, Jun 28 2013, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm CDT

The Alzheimer’s Association Greater Indiana Chapter presents the Northwest Indiana Area Caregiver Conference. The conference is designed to educate both family and professional caregivers who would like to enhance their knowledge of Alzheimer’s and their caregiving skills. The presenter for the Caregiver Conference will be Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA, a dementia expert who trains and consults for agencies, facilities and families. She started her career as a direct caregiver more than 35 years ago. Snow has taken care of two family members with dementing illnesses and the combination of her "been there-done that" skills and her formal training give Teepa the credibility and experience to help caregivers with tried-and-true solutions. The cost for family caregivers is $25, and the cost for professional caregivers is $60. CEUs will be available for social workers and health care facility administrators and certificates of attendance will be awarded to other professionals.  The cost of the conference includes lunch, break service and handouts.  Call the Alzheimer’s Association 24/7 Helpline for more information or to register.
