In partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association, Baptist Health Neurology, Bluegrass Area Agency on Aging and Independent Living (BGAAAIL) and the University of Kentucky’s Sanders-Brown Center on Aging, these workshops are held every three months. Specific dates to TBA.
This program is specialized for family caregivers and will offer information about Alzheimer’s disease and caregiving, and will also provide an opportunity to reflect, regenerate, and gain a new perspective on your caregiving issues. Local and statewide experts who specialize in aging and Alzheimer’s care will present topics that are valuable to family caregivers of persons with dementia. This training is designed specifically for family caregivers and is therefore only open to those who are family caregivers.
There is a limited amount of grant money to cover the cost of respite care while a caregiver attends the training. This is on a first-come, first-serve basis and is eligible to those in Fayette, Scott, Jessamine, Madison, Clark, Anderson, Woodford and Shelby counties. Please call Kelly Parsons, CSW at 859-323-5550 for more information.
These workshops are FREE but registration is required.
