Home Instead Senior Care's Family Education Workshop Series:
Are you caring for an aging parent or relative with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias?
Beginning in August of 2012, Home Instead Senior Care of Skokie will be offering a series of free educational workshops on Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. These four workshops are open to the public, and focus on helping families understand the disease, as well as learn strategies and techniques for managing challenging behaviors. The series includes four workshops that will be led by Tania Herbert, a trained professional from our office, who also administers a more in-depth Alzheimer's & Dementia training to our company's CAREGivers. Family caregivers can attend all or any combination of the free workshops offered. See below for details:
