In a society that is plagued with high healthcare costs, family caregivers are unsung heroes. Family caregivers are relatives who are responsible, often 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for the health and welfare of another human being.
Even these heroes need help. On Saturday, Feb. 11, Boise State is hosting the 6th annual Family Caregiver Conference from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Student Union Building’s Jordan and Hatch ballrooms.
Registration is $10 and includes breakfast, snacks, parking and a host of supportive caregiver panels and other resources for caregivers. The conference also will include talks titled “Guardianship, powers of attorney, and decision making for those with reduced capacity,” and “Creating a safe living environment.”
Register for the caregiver conference here or contact Mary Holden at (208) 426-5899. This event is co-sponsored by the Idaho Caregiver Alliance, Idaho Parents Unlimited, Legacy Corp, St. Alphonsus and the Center for the Study of Aging at Boise State University.
