Caregivers- Information Session

Help for Caregivers

The EAP will host a lunchtime workshop for Caregivers on Friday, April 26 from noon-1:00. Regina Curran, who is a Geriatric Care Manager and also the President of the local chapter of Care Managers will be presenting information to a small group of Caregivers.

A geriatric care manager assists older adults and persons with disabilities reach their maximum functional potential.  The person’s independence is encouraged, while safety and security concerns are addressed.Every person’s circumstances are different.  Families can be faced with many alternatives and may not know how to choose the alternative that will be the best fit for that person and that family.  Geriatric care managers can help identify alternatives and provide guidance to help a family as they address the needs of the older adult or the person with disabilities.
Information on geriatric care  management is available at http://www.caremanager.org/ .

The EAP will provide a light lunch for the first 10 people who sign up for the presentation next Friday.  Please email Maureen at mmccarre@psych.umaryland.edu if you would like to attend.
