The Giving Care/Taking Care one day conference for family caregivers is scheduled for Monday, June 5, 2017, at the Tukwila Community Center. This annual event is sponsored by AARP Washington and Seattle-King County Aging and Disability Services. Keynote speaker will be Dr. Jane Tonatore.
It is still not possible to register online for this event, so you will need to print the brochure, (see link below) or at least the registration page and mail it in. The $30 registration goes up to $40 after May 15. Parking is free, and the fee includes a continental breakfast and box lunch, so it’s really a bargain.
Look over the workshops listed on the brochure. They cover a range of topics from legal issues to mindfulness to communication skills and more. See you there.
