Information of special interest to caregivers for seniors

 

Cranford, NJ – Union County residents who care for family members or other persons with Alzheimer’s or dementia are invited to attend a Caregivers Conference for guidance on health, legal and financial issues.  The conference is scheduled for Tuesday, November 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Union County College in Cranford.

“Our goal is to help ensure that Union County families and caregivers have access to accurate, up-to-date information about programs and services that can benefit them, as well as guidance on financial and legal issues they may face,” said Union County Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella.

The Caregivers Conference is an annual public service of the Union County Department of Human Services Division on Aging, in partnership with Union County College and the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater New Jersey.  The conference is free of charge but pre-registration is required due to limited seating.  To register, call The Alzheimer’s Association of Greater New Jersey at 973-586-4300.
