The Broome County Office for Aging invites all caregivers to attend our Special Caregiver Forum on Wednesday, November 7 from 5:15-7:30pm. The forum will begin with a light dinner at 5:15 sponsored by Golden Days Adult Day Program. Throughout the evening there will be information tables open; at 6 pm a breakout session will begin, and we ask that attendees choose between two Options for this session. Option A will cover medication options for those with Alzheimer's and related dementias. Option B will teach caregivers how to physically manage/move loved ones without injuring themselves.

There is no charge for this event but advanced registration is required. Please call Caregiver Services at the Office for Aging to make your reservation: 778-2411.
