Ellie Anbinder and Valerie Gaines
Presenting:  Why are we talking about caregiving?
All of us, in one way or another, have had experience with Caregiving—kids, husband, parents, special needs, addictions.  Whatever was required of us, we’ve done it!  Listen and learn from our experiences and expertise and share what you will about yours.  
This workshop will explore:
  • Overview of elder caregiving and, specifically, memory care issues
  • Caring for you—the caregiver.
  • What is Reiki and how can that help?
