At a recent educational presentation titled ‘Caring for a Loved One with Memory Loss’, an attendee shared, “The presentation was wonderful, and I got some good pointers to use with my loved one. The handouts were extremely helpful.” The resident service coordinator at a senior housing building remarked, “Excellent presentation today on ‘Living Well with Anxiety’. We had 19 attendees which is highly unusual for us.” Another business shared, “Thank you for the presentation on the ‘Difference Between Palliative Care and Hospice’, we had a great discussion.”
