Learning how to help others without hurting yourself in the process is important because caregiving can be physically demanding at times. Alzheimer’s Arkansas and Second Presbyterian Church will host “Learning to Help Others Without Hurting Yourself” on October 25, 2011 from 8:30am to 3:00pm. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Workshop participants will learn tips on communication; how to keep a loved one busy with purposeful activities; local community resources; and how to use adaptive equipment which is provided by Bird and Bear Medical Equipment. Registration deadline is October 20, 2011. The public is invited free of charge. The cost for professionals is $20 which includes continuing education units. Limited respite reimbursement is also available on a first come first serve basis.
