The PEACE Coalition is excited to announce our 4th Annual Caregiver College. This free event is designed to provide useful and practical information to caregivers. The Caregiver College will benefit family members, professionals, paid and unpaid (family and friend) caregivers. Vouchers are available to caregivers who wish to pay someone to provide care while they attend the conference or to pay a nearby adult day care to provide care during the conference.

Topics this year include: The Disabled Caregiver, The Male Caregiver, Decision-Making for Incapacitated Adults, Disaster Preparedness for Caregivers, Self Care=Better Care for others, Avoiding Financial Scams, Wise Investing for Seniors, Managing the Mental Stress of Caregiving, Understanding Elder Care and How to Pay for It, Fall Prevention, Assistive Technologies (presented by UCP Huntsville’s Helping Those Who Care program), and more.

New This Year:

Webinar: We are pleased to offer an interactive webinar, “Understanding Medicaid Estate Recovery” presented by the Alabama Medicaid Agency.

We are also offering sessions for individuals interested in starting their own caregiving service.

Lunch, a light breakfast and snacks will be provided.

Exhibitors will be present to provide information about services available in our area.

CEUs are being offered for Nurses, Nursing Home Administrators and Social Workers.
