Omaha, Neb. – Home Instead Senior Care® franchises in Iowa are sponsoring a free Family Caregiver Support Web Seminar designed to help families understand and cope with situations that may arise when several generations live under one roof.
The seminar is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 19, at noon CST. It is part of a monthly series that was developed in cooperation with the American Society on Aging (ASA). Pre-registration is required and can be completed at Caregiverstress.com/familyeducation.
“We are pleased to offer this continuing education program for family caregivers, designed to provide valuable information that can help better equip them to care for their loved ones,” said Jeff Huber, president and chief operating officer (COO) of Home Instead, Inc., the franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network.
