Benevilla Caregiver Connect Event

Benevilla is excited to announce their third “Caregiver Connect” event of 2019 will be held in Sun City November 15, 2019. This free educational event provides family caregivers with support and guidance to assist them on their caregiving journey. The Benevilla Caregiver Connect event will be held Friday, November 15th from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM at Bellevue Heights Church at 9440 W. Hutton Drive, Sun City, 85351.
 
Brian Brown, Dementia Care Education President, will be the Keynote Speaker.  The title of his presentation is “Aging in America: Taking Care of an Older Population.”  Mr. Brown is an expert in dementia care education and training with more than 20 years of experience in Alzheimer’s and dementia research, healthy aging and cultural competency.
 
Mr. Brown is a career and technical education advisor for two area school districts and serves on the leadership councils of both the Arizona Alzheimer’s Consortium and the Alzheimer’s Association. In addition, he serves on the boards of the Arizona Foundation for Eye Health and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. 
 
The event will highlight an option between two additional, exciting presentations.  “Dementia Friends: Changing the way people think, act and talk about dementia”  by Janice Greeno, Outreach Manager from Banner Sun Health Research Institute, and “Making Strides Against Parkinson’s Research Matters” by Dr. David Shprecher, DO, MS the Movement Disorders Program Director from Banner Sun Health Research Institute will both be available to attend. Call 623-584-4999 to register today, space is limited.
 
Family caregivers can get their pressing questions answered and collect free resources from many of our community senior care providers.  A Benevilla C.A.R.E.S. Resource Specialist will also be on-site for anyone needing one-on-one support.  At the last event, 50 local senior services providers were on hand to supply critical caregiver information to the attendees.  They also offer expert advice and direction on a myriad of topics including senior living options, home care choices, insurance alternatives, elder law and help with government programs.
 
Benevilla has been helping family caregivers since 1981 when they started their very first crisis counseling service.  “The Benevilla founders were aware family caregivers were bearing a heavy burden when caring for their loved ones often neglecting their own health” says Benevilla President and CEO, Joanne Thomson. “Today, 30-60% of caregivers pass away from illnesses related to caregiver stress before the person they are caring for. That’s why getting family caregivers support and information is crucial for our aging communities and their families.”
 
Reservations are required.  Please call 623-584-4999 to reserve your space today.  There will be a complimentary breakfast provided by Birt’s Bistro.
