Please join us to discuss and to “test drive” some fabulous caregiving tools and resources: CareMaps, Lotsa Helping Hands, and Care-FULL Conversations. We’ll also discuss how personal boundaries and self care assist in navigating the twists and turns encountered along the way.

8 a.m. – 12 p.m, Callahan-Edfast Mortuary, 2515 Patterson Rd. Grand Junction, CO 81505

Caregiving is a complicated journey to say the very least. Navigating the constantly changing conditions requires not only your time, attention, and energy but also knowledge and a competent caregiving team. “Smooth sailing” is merely a pipe dream without navigational skills. By taking time to adequately prepare for the journey, you increase the likelihood that your dreams will become your reality. Please join us to learn about beneficial caregiving resources: CareMaps, Lotsa Helping Hands, Caring Bridge, and Care-FULL Conversations.
