Resource Specialist will also be on-site for anyone needing one-on-one support. At the last event, over 45 local senior services providers were on hand to supply critical caregiver information to the attendees. They also offer expert advice and direction on a myriad of topics including senior living options, home care choices, insurance alternatives, elder law and help with government programs. Benevilla has been helping family caregivers since 1981 when they started their very first crisis counseling service. “The Benevilla founders were aware that family caregivers were bearing a heavy burden when caring for their ill or incapacitated loved ones while trying to keep themselves healthy” says Benevilla President and CEO, Joanne Thomson. “Today, 30-60% of caregivers pass away from illnesses related to caregiver stress before the person they are caring for. That’s why getting family caregivers support and information is crucial for our aging communities and their families.” Reservations are required and the events fill up fast. Please call 623-584-4999 to reserve your space today. There will be a coffee and light refreshments in the morning and a free box lunch provided by Birt’s Bistro.
