Benevilla is excited to announce the return of their “Caregiver Connect” event as a live, in-person experience, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Friday, Nov. 18, at First Baptist Church of Sun City West, 17419 N. Conquistador Drive.

There will be several educational presentations during this event by experts from Banner Sun Health Research Institute, the Alzheimer’s Association, and Geriatric Resources on dementia care, Parkinson’s, caregiving education and tips as well as coping with loneliness especially during the holidays. Family caregivers can get their pressing questions answered.

The Benevilla Preferred Partners, local senior services providers, will also have table displays to supply important caregiver information to the attendees. They are experts in senior living options, home care choices, insurance alternatives, elder law, hospice and more. The Benevilla programs will also be on hand with information highlighting our free C.A.R.E.S. Resource Department including free support groups, home services, and educational workshops. There will be interactive health activities and a healthy breakfast available as well as snacks throughout the event.

Benevilla has been helping family caregivers since 1981 when a crisis counseling service began.

“The Benevilla founders understood family caregivers were bearing a heavy burden caring for their loved ones often neglecting their own health” Joanne Thomson, Benevilla President and CEO, said. “Today, 30%-60% of caregivers pass from illnesses related to caregiver stress before the person they are caring for. That’s why getting family caregivers this type of support and information is crucial for our aging communities and their families.”
