Those coping with the increasing needs of caring for an elderly loved one face many challenges. Coordinating care, managing care, preparing legal documents, financial obstacles, family conflict and emotional stress are some of the issues that will be addressed in our panel discussion "Caring for the Caregiver". Please join us as we hear from Aging Life Care Manager, Joan Garbow and Elder Law Attorney, Ann Fowler-Cruz.

Joan Garbow is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Case Manager with more than 25 years experience in homecare, acute care, family services and physical rehabilitation. She will share with us her unique and highly effective approach to Geriatric and Senior Care Management. 

Elder Law Attorney Ann Fowler-Cruz will focus on the legal perspective for the caregiver. She will provide insight on long-term care planning, asset preservation, Medicaid applications and other necessary documents, disability planning, estate planning, utilizing conservatorships/guardianship, and special needs trusts.

While there is no cost, we ask that you RSVP to the church office to assist in  phone:203-227-4707.  Along with the 10/5 event, we will be holding small group conversations on the topic “Caring for the Caregiver,” Sunday mornings, 9/22 – 10/6 at 11am.  All are welcome to attend any or all of the gatherings
