Millard to Sponsor Senior Caregiver Support Forum
3/27/2012
BLOOMSBURG – In an effort to make sure local residents serving as caregivers for seniors are aware of all available resources, state Rep. David Millard (R-Millville) is sponsoring an educational forum.

Millard’s senior caregiver support forum will be held on Wednesday, April 18, starting at 6:30 p.m. The event will be held at the Bloomsburg Technology Center, 240 Market St. in Bloomsburg.

“Many serving as caregivers are thrust into the role with little to no preparation,” Millard said. “I am hopeful this forum will serve as a compact and educational evening that helps caregivers become aware of all of the resources available to them. We’ll also be allowing plenty of time for questions and answers.”

The lawmaker listed those slated to participate in the forum: 

        - Orangeville Rehab (the Spirit of Health Care); 
        - Columbia Montour Home Health and Hospice; 
        - Local Elder Law attorney Marianne Kreisher Fogelsanger, CELA; 
        - Columbia Montour Aging Office; 
        - Local ministry leaders.

Those wishing to attend the forum must RSVP to Millard’s office by calling 570-387-0246. This event will be kept to a small number of registrants to ensure that all questions get adequate time and answers from the panelists. More forums may be scheduled over the summer and fall if additional residents show interest.
