Caregiver Celebration Day provides fun and relaxation for the Big Bend area's caregivers.
Alzheimer's Project, Inc. along with Area Agency on Aging for North Florida will host its 14th Annual Caregiver Celebration Day at the Ghazvini Learning Center on September 21, 2012 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The event, which provides a day of pampering for caregivers, is completely free of charge to attendees. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, as well as massages, goody bags, multiple health screenings, facials, hand massages, speakers and great entertainment.
"Every year in September, Area Agency on Aging for North Florida and Alzheimer's Project, Inc. collaborate to sponsor a day of rest and relaxation designed especially for the caregivers in our community," said Alzheimer's Project, Inc. CEO, Bill Wertman. “Caregivers come together on this day to share stories, hear motivational speakers, mingle with community providers, and become lost in a magic massage or receive a mini beauty-makeover. We are honored to be a part of it all."
Caregiver Celebration Day will feature local vendors supplying goods and resources to the caregiver community, as well massage therapists and beauticians to give caregivers the pampering they deserve. Motivational speakers will inspire caregivers along their journey as they enjoy a catered breakfast and lunch to the sounds of a local jazz ensemble. There will be opportunities for many different health screenings and legal counsel from local attorneys who are knowledgeable in elder law.
Respite Care will be provided on-site for those requiring temporary care for their loved one with Alzheimer's or related dementia. Trained volunteers will provide care and engage everyone in interactive social activities and breakfast/lunch will be provided as well.
