Millard to Sponsor Senior Caregiver Support Forum
2/15/2013
BLOOMSBURG – In an effort to ensure 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 Thursday, March 21, starting at 6:30 p.m. The event will be held at the Geisinger-Bloomsburg Hospital, 549 Fair St. in Bloomsburg.

“Many serving as caregivers to elderly loved ones are thrust into the role with little to no preparation,” Millard said. “This forum has been designed to serve as a compact and educational event to build awareness of all of the resources available to caregivers.  We’ll also be allowing plenty of time for questions and answers.”

The following persons/organizations are slated to participate in the forum:
  • Columbia Montour Home Health and Hospice;
  • Gary Flaherty, Columbia County director of veteran’s services;
  • Local Elder Law attorney Marianne Kreisher, CELA;
  • Mark Varano from LIFE (Living Independently for Elders) Geisinger;
  • Columbia-Montour Aging Office; and
  • LINK network.
Those wishing to attend the forum must RSVP to Millard’s office by calling 570-387-0246 or reserving online at RepMillard.com.  This event will be kept to a small number of registrants to ensure that all questions get adequate time and answers from the panelists.
