The 11th Annual Family Caregiver Conference is this weekend, November 7th, from 8:00am- 4:00pm at Sandia Casino & Resort. Each year the number of unpaid care givers rises. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there were 106,000 caregivers reported in New Mexico in 2014 and it is expected to continue to rise.
As this number increases it is important that families are aware of what resources are available to them. There will be workshops from legal and financial issues to helping the caregiver coupe with stress.
The Family Caregiver Conference celebrates and honors the unsung heroes that care for family members day by day. This conference is free for family caregivers but you need to register in advance.
