AAACAP director headlines caregiving conference

Wednesday, March 09, 2016

The Area Agency on Aging of the Capital Area Director, Jennifer Scott, will deliver a keynote speech about practical tips for caregivers who care for a person with  Alzheimer’s or other related dementia during Alzheimer’s Texas and Riverbend Church’s symposium - GPS, a Road Map for Caring for Aging Family Members.

“Learning about how the disease affects the person’s abilities is the key to being able to understand why the person struggles to complete the most basic tasks each day and struggles to follow directions of the caregiver,” Scott said. Her presentation will provide information on making the caregiving experience better for caregivers and their loved ones.

The conference will be from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 12 at Riverbend Church Fellowship Hall in Austin.

Other speakers include Dr. Dewayne Nash, who will discuss Alzheimer's research and his connection with it; Pastor Reg Larkin, minister and counselor, who will discuss faith, celebration and grief in Caregiving; and Mary Koffend, owner of Accountable Aging, who will discuss Medicare, Medicaid, and Medigap.
