Sixth Annual Caregiver Conference Offers Strategies for Better Dementia Care

Caregiver Conference

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) Garrison Institute on Aging and South Plains Association of Governments - Area Agency on Aging will cohost the Sixth Annual Caregiver Conference on August 28 from 9 am to 3:15 pm at the Science Spectrum Exhibitor Hall, 2579 S. Loop 289. 

Caregiver stress is a rising problem among caregiving situations. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, it can cause physical and mental symptoms like sleeplessness and depression. This makes the already difficult task of dementia care even more taxing. The Sixth Annual Caregiver Conference will provide strategies for both better self-care and better care for a loved one living with dementia.
For more information, please contact Susan Thompson, TTUHSC Garrison Institute on Aging, at 806.743.7821 or Margaret Gonzales, 806-687-0940.
