Progress Asks: What FREE Resources Are There for Senior Caregivers?

Progress Asks returns to pose a question that many caregivers probably don't think about day to day, but is important to know: 

Q: What free resources are there for senior caregivers?

A:There are several resources online, such as caring.com and caregivingcafe.com  that give useful tips and other resources about staying healthy, being mindful of elderly care and providing the best care to whomever you support. 

However, for those searching for face to face-to-face opportunities. The upcoming "So your loved one has Alzheimer's...A Journey for Caregiver's," which will be held July 23 at Trevecca Community Church, is the perfect opportunity to interface with Nashville's senior caregiving community and other elder care experts. The best part of the seminar - It's FREE! Register here for this open seminar for caregiver's brought you by the Mental Health America of Middle Tennessee.
