SOWEGA Council hosts Alzheimer's conference

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Alzheimer's Outreach Center and SOWEGA Council on Aging are hosting the FEARLESS Caregiver Conference at the Kay H. Hind Senior Life Enrichment Center until 2:30 today.

The event is open to family and professional caregivers, registration is $25.00 per person. Guest speaker for the conference is Gary Barg, Editor in Chief of Today's Caregiver Magazine and Author of: “The Fearless Caregiver” and “Caregiving Ties that Bind”.

Caregivers are responsible for the well-being of their loved ones who need care. They are also commonly referred to as the “Sandwich Generation” due to the fact that they find themselves sandwiched between responsibilities to parents, children, grandchildren and spouses.

Recently the recognition of multi-generational caregiving has been extended to include the phrase “Club Sandwich Generation” referring to the fact that caregiving can include members of more than three generations.
