Family caregivers are the backbone of community-based services, providing over $450 billion of unpaid services across this nation. To support local family caregivers of people with dementia, First Baptist Church Maryville is offering a workshop developed by the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving (RCI). The Dealing with Dementia Workshop provides tips and strategies for caregivers on best practices for caring for their loved ones and themselves.
Caregivers who attend the four-hour workshop will receive a copy of the new Dealing with Dementia Guide. This guide provides over 300 pages of information and solutions to problems caregivers face every day. If you are a caregiver or know someone who is caring for a loved one with dementia, don’t miss this important opportunity.
Training will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 29, at First Baptist Church Maryville, 202 W. Lamar Alexander Parkway, Maryville. Individuals must pre-register for the workshop no later than Thursday, June 27, by contacting First Baptist Church at 865-982-5531 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
