Our Caregivers Are Special
Statistics show one-third of caregivers pass before their loved ones. The foundation is here to help because we don’t want our caregivers to wear out! When the need for physical and emotional support is continuous, it can be overwhelming no matter how much you love the person you are caring for. At Joe’s Club, we are here to help!
Alzheimer’s Lecture Series
Caring for your loved one can be an overwhelming and stressful job. Especially if they have Alzheimer’s disease or Related Dementias. We recognize the importance of education and respite for caregivers, so we’ve created the CareGiver Education Series. Every month, the Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation has an educational lecture or event for caregivers to learn things like what to do if mom won’t take a shower, or what to say when dad thinks his daily medication is poison, or how to get rid of that ominous figure standing outside of the window.
The education series consists of Fall and Spring lectures “Basics of Caregiving and More” with Janet Steiner, Fall and Spring “Caregiver Education & Resource Program” with Barbara Borman, Caregiver Cafes, Virtual Dementia Tours, Caregiver’s “HI” Tea, and the Fearless Caregiver Conference.
Each event gives caregivers an opportunity to learn and share, and strives to provide all who attend peace of mind.
From A Friend,
There are only four kinds of people in the world – those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregivers.
