Family caregiver workshop planned for Oct. 25
A family caregiver workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Oct. 25 at the Madison County Extension Office, 230 Duncannon Lane, Richmond. This program will offer information about Alzheimer's disease and care giving and will also provide an opportunity to reflect, to regenerate and to gain a new perspective on care giving issues. Local and statewide experts on aging will present training designed specifically for family caregivers, so this training is not open to professionals. Registration is $10 and includes lunch. To register, call 1-800-272-3900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
