County will present seminar to assist family caregivers


March 8, 2011

The Aging and Disability Services Division of Snohomish County Human Services will host a presentation on the issues and challenges faced by caregivers.

“The Caregiving Journey” will be presented on Wednesday, March 23.

Caring for a loved one is often described as a journey. There’s a beginning, middle and an end – and along the way, there is the need for services and support changes. Knowing about options along the journey can help the caregiver make the best decisions for themselves and their loved ones.

Learn the five milestones of the journey, the challenges of each one and the best strategies to get through them. Presenter Christina Marneris is the Family Caregiver Support Program Coordinator at Southwest Washington Area Agency on Aging and Disabilities.

The seminar will run from 10:30 a.m. to noon at Compass Health Administrative Office’s Central Conference Room in Building 2, located at 4526 Federal Ave., Everett.

Sponsored by The Everett Clinic and the Snohomish County Council on Aging, the event is free and open to the public.
