Caregivers Can Find Support, Resources, Camaraderie at Free Workshop
November is National Family Caregiver's Month, and for the first time in three years Hillsborough County Aging Services is hosting an in-person workshop for those caring for loved ones with dementia or Alzheimer's.
This year's theme Caregiving Happens raises awareness of the role of family caregivers, and the fact that caregiving is not always convenient or expected.
This is an opportunity for caregivers to tap into the services provided by Hillsborough County's Adult Day Services and learn about supplemental resources that are available. Speakers will also present relevant topics important to caregivers.
Speakers for the event are:
- Debbie Selsavage with Coping with Dementia LLC
- Sofia Sundberg with the USF Health Memory Disorders Clinic
- Rob Harris with the Alzheimer's Association
- Eileen Poiley with the USF Health Byrd Alzheimer's Center and Research Institute
The workshop is open to all Hillsborough County caregivers and will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12, at the Phyllis Busansky Specialized Adult Day Center, 4102 W. Spruce St., Tampa, FL 33607. The program is free, and lunch will be provided.
Registration is recommended by contacting Remona Singleton, general manager for Hillsborough County Adult Day Services, at (813) 644-5985 or SingletonR@HCFLGov.net.
