FREE Family Caregiver Forum – Surprise, AZ
Please join us to learn “What Questions Should You Be Asking for Yourself and Your Family?” when considering elder care. You will learn from geriatric care experts from Adultcare Assistance Homecare, Geriatric Resources & The Holt Law Group.
Many families do not realize the wide variety of senior care options available with varying degrees of costs, risks and independence. Most aspects of senior care in Arizona is unregulated which makes the family largely responsible for researching the best options as elder care becomes either an immediate or progressive reality. Knowing what questions to ask is fundamental to preserving senior independence, family responsibilities and wealth management. The forum will last around two hours with time for question and answers.
DATE: Saturday, June 6th, 2015
TIME: 10 AM – NOON
COST: FREE to Public (RSVP REQUIRED)
RSVP: Register HERE (Seating is Limited)
LOCATION: Orchard Point, 15048 W. Young St., Surprise, AZ 85374
Discovering our limitations is tough. My family knows firsthand. When my husband was diagnosed with cancer we experienced sadness, exhaustion and stress. My commitments to work and family stretched beyond my capability. As others joined beside me, we pulled together as a team. More important to my respite, my husband was able to thrive at home. This is vital as living at home empowers independence, recovers dignity and grants familiarity leading to a healthier life.
Through my experience, I learned that home care in Arizona is different than in most of the country. Arizona permits the use of independent contractors and does not require criminal background clearance for caregivers. The lack of regulation in Arizona places citizens at risk. The more I have learned, the more I have become involved in protecting seniors and their families. This has led to Adultcare Assistance Homecare maintaining the highest standards for caregiver selection and training. My desire to protect Arizona seniors extends beyond my company with my appointment as the President of the Arizona Chapter of the Home Care Association of America.
