PENQUIS - Experienced caretakers and eldercare professionals know that a crisis is the hardest time to learn about the complex world of eldercare. Yet most people put off thinking about these difficult issues until they're forced to face them. For that reason, Pine Tree Hospice, along with representatives from area agencies, will be offering a Caregiver Conference on Thursday, September 25th from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. in the Mayo Regional Hospital Resource Center in Dover-Foxcroft.
This program has been developed to support individuals and community organizations as they learn about and access eldercare information and will provide various resources that will contribute to the lives of caregivers and those they serve.
Those in attendance will receive The Caregiver's Handbook: A Companion Resource to Caring for Your Parents. To make sure we have enough copies on hand, please call the PTH office and let us know you plan to attend.
Highlights from the film, Caring for Your Parents, recently shown on PBS will be reviewed and a panel made up of area professionals will also be available to address your questions and concerns.
If you plan to attend, would consider being on the panel or have any questions, please call the PTH office at 564-4346.
