Know the 10 Signs of Alzheimer’s

Honey, where are my keys? We have all had those moments when we can’t find the keys, or our wallet. We leave a room and forget why we left the room in the first place. For most of us, this is just what most of us would call a “senior moment.”

Packing Your Caregiver Success Kit

As part of the Chicken Soup Lecture Series, we hope you will join us for “Packing Your Caregiver Success Kit” on Sunday, March 30th from 1:30 pm to 3:00 p.m. Attend this lecture for the roadmap to a positive family care experience.

454932333

The road to a healthy caregiving experience is easier to navigate when you’re aware of the common roadblocks. Learn all the tips for a successful journey from an expert and educator in the field of aging.

Vicki Schmall, Ph.D., author of The Caregiver Helpbook:  Powerful Tools for Caregiving, will teach how to maintain your personal well-being, while providing care and support.

Caregiving involves many challenges.  

Family caregivers often need to master new skills, develop new ways to relate to a family member, and make difficult decisions. Surprisingly, one of the greatest challenges happens to be taking care of yourself. Learn how to maintain your personal well-being, while providing care and support to your family member.

  • The positive and negative approaches to caregiving
  • The impact of differing approaches
  • A question and answer session

Caregivers and their family members are all welcome to attend and learn from one of the leading authorities in the field of aging.

When the going gets tough, we’re here to help.

Should your loved one eventually need more help than you’re able to provide at home, you can both make your home at Rose Schnitzer Manor and enjoy a whole new peace of mind.

The first five people who RSVP and attend the workshop will receive a FREE copy of Dr. Schmall’s book, The Caregiver Helpbook:  Powerful Tools for Caregiving.

Call (503) 862-2077 to RSVP or visit us at www.RoseSchnitzerManor.org/Caring. Please RSVP by Sunday, March 23.
