Elderwerks caregivers benefit set for April 6

CRYSTAL LAKE – Elderwerks, in conjunction with senior communities, services and social services throughout McHenry County, will host a Caregiver Conference on April 6.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Park Place, 406 W. Woodstock St., Crystal Lake. Registration begins at 8 a.m.

The conference will allow caregivers throughout the county and nearby communities to gather information from keynote speakers, a caregiver resource panel of experts and supportive McHenry County resources.

Although many caregivers are providing support for their senior loved ones, caregivers also can provide support for their children, siblings, neighbors, friends and others.

A panel of four speakers will present topics of interest to caregivers. In addition to the speakers, there will be 30 support tables of information from senior service providers throughout the area, including communities, in-home care and professional services as well as local social service agencies.

There is no cost to attend the program; however, registration is required, as there will be limited seating. A continental breakfast and light lunch will be provided.

For information and registration, contact Lecia Szuberla at 847-462-0885 or email lecia.szuberla@elderwerks.com.
