The Orange County Department on Aging and the Project EngAGE Mental Wellness Senior Resource Team invite the public to attend a presentation, Geriatric Care Management 101, on Jan. 25.
Care planning for an aging loved one can be overwhelming and often leads to caregiver burnout. Caregiver burnout describes the emotional and physical stress that caregiving can take on the body, especially when the caregiver is not receiving the support they need. One way to alleviate this burden is to ask for a help from a geriatric care manager. The Project EngAGE Mental Wellness Senior Resource Team welcomes you to join Geriatric Care Manager, Sharon Kilpatrick, as she walks you through what a geriatric care manager is and how they can help. Learn as she guides you through the hiring process, how she supports the families she works with, the costs and more. Educational session followed by Q&A.
The event will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 25, from 4 – 6 p.m. at the Seymour Center in Chapel Hill and simultaneously via a virtual platform.
Please register for in-person attendance by Monday, Jan. 23 with the Seymour Center front desk at 919-968-2070.
