1st of 2: 2014 Family Caregiver Forums
1 pm – 5 pm. Thur., March 27th in Central
The Arizona Geriatrics Society understands how important caregivers are; they are part of the entire team that provides healthcare to the elderly in Arizona. The mission of AzGS is to provide continuing medical education to the interdisciplinary healthcare team of physicians, NPs, PAs, nurses, social workers, case managers, long term care & assisted living administrators, pharmacists, etc. AzGS believes that knowledge is power. The more caregivers understand the symptoms, progression and treatment of a disease, the better able they will be to care for a family member suffering from that disease. These Family Caregiver Forums help caregivers better understand their role and alleviate their stress. The Arizona Geriatrics Society – Family Caregiver Forums are offered free of charge to all family caregivers thanks to a grant from the Area Agency on Aging, Region One.
