CICOA presents Honor Your Father and Mother Conference on Oct. 27 to support family caregivers
Caring for a loved one can be rewarding, but it also comes with lots of challenges, as it can be emotionally, physically and even financially draining. CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions understands these challenges and is providing a workshop on Oct. 27 to help those who are caring for aging parents or family members with disabilities. Area clergy and lay leaders also are invited to attend the conference, so they can better understand how to support those within their faith communities who are caring for loved ones.
Thanks to medical advances, people are living longer than ever before, however, more people also are living with chronic conditions that negatively impact their quality of life. Caregivers often struggle with how to best care for their loved ones.
