Caregiver knowledge and skills project coming to Vermilion

I will be working with The University Memory & Aging Center of Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals Case Medical Center in their study to learn how to best help family members increase their knowledge and skills related to the caregiving of persons with Alzheimer’s Disease or other type of memory impairment.

I will be leading a series of workshops in Vermilion starting the week of July 20. Each workshop will be from 6 – 8 p.m., one day a week, for six weeks. Caregivers are needed to participate in all six of the workshops. The specific location and day of the week is dependent on the responses I receive from those who would like to attend. Participation is limited to 10.

If you are caring for someone who is living at home with mild to moderate memory impairment this workshop is free help for you. At the same time, your participation in these workshops will also help The University Memory & Aging Center and  University Hospitals study how to best help caregivers develop their knowledge and skills when caring for a loved-one with memory impairment.

There is no cost for participation and this study has been approved by the University Hospitals Case Medical center Institutional Review Board. If you would like to know more about the “Caregiver Knowledge & Skills Project” give me a call at Serving Our Seniors, 419-624-1856, or 800-564-1856.  Ask for me — Sue Daugherty!
