Help for Caregivers
Assistance for Those Caring for Elderly RelativesThe EAP is committed to helping those who are helping others. We will have a special guest come to present ideas to those who are caring for elderly parents, relatives or friends.
Regina Curran, MA CMC, is a geriatric care manager. She 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. Regina Curran is the President of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the National Caregivers Association. She will be at the EAP on April 26, Friday, at noon to share information and answer questions. Seating is limited, so reserve your spot now by emailing Maureen in the EAP at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 8-0412. Information on geriatric care management is available at http://www.caremanager.org/ .
