New Seminar Information

There has not been a recent Caregiver Seminar. Perhaps caregivers are confused by the numerous 'free' seminars and wonder why they should pay for one when they can get the same information free. The answer is, Free seminars do not offer the same information as one developed and presented by an Aging Life Care Professional with more than 20 years of experience. Caregivers who complete the Caregiver Seminar usually do not need to hire a professional to guide through through the medical maze or help evaluate long term care communities or understand the side effects of medications on an older body.

The Caregiver Seminar is 8 hours of intensive education in every aspect of ElderCare. It's goal is to help caregivers learn the skills that will enable them to be better caregivers while reducing the stress. A minimum of 10 participants is required. When I have 10 people interested I will propose a meeting site and time. Dallas is huge! One site may not be convenient for everyone, so the class may not make. Keep sending me your interest, and I'll continue to try to schedule a class in a good area for you at a good time.
