Boomers, Seniors, Caregivers Will Find Answers and Resources from Experts at Savor Life Educational & Resource Fair
Discovering resources and guidance to assist Boomers and seniors with planning or what’s needed now is overwhelming… What options are available? Where do I turn? Who do I trust? Caring for your family and aging loved ones while balancing your own life can be a challenge. Another test is maintaining one’s lifestyle while aging. If you are caring for a spouse or parent who depends on you for daily assistance you are likely struggling with the need for support.
You’ll find answers at the Savor Life Educational & Resource Fair offered by Savvy Senior Sources, LLC hosted by Transfiguration Catholic Church in Oakdale.
The event starts off with Own Your Future Minnesota: Planning for long-term care. About 70 percent of Minnesotans 65 and older will need help with health and personal care needs as they age. We need to think about and prepare for the future we want for ourselves and our loved ones. Own your future Minnesota, is a joint federal and state initiative encouraging Minnesotans to plan for their future. This presentation will outline the impact long-term care has on you and your loved ones, the importance of planning, being prepared and knowing your choices.
Shifting Caregiving from Crisis to Comfort –
Through Attitude We Achieve Gratitude
is the keynote address presented by Lori La Bey, radio show host and Dr. Oz and Sharecare recognized as the #1 Influencer Online for Alzheimer’s. “We can only truly understand and appreciate our caring roles if we take the time to evaluate our own perceptions and how they drive our relationships. Once we have this information we are able to make adjustments to achieve gratitude through attitude.” During her keynote, La Bey’s compassionate stories will relate to your life, offering priceless support, ideas and comfort for those taking on the highly emotional role of caregiver to a loved one.
In addition to the opening and keynote messages, a panel presentation by experts in the field as well as professionals at the resource tables will answer your questions and provide information and options available for you and your loved ones. After having the opportunity to hear the speakers and visit the resources, attendees will gather for dinner and discussion.
Jean a previous fair attendee stated, “I was pleasantly surprised at how many ‘friends’ I have to help at every turn in the road ahead for me and my husband. The fair is filled with information given by professionals and fellow caregivers who are steps ahead of me and ready to give a helping hand. Just to have people to whom I could ask my questions was important. I really appreciate all the answers to questions I had not thought of. You come away knowing you are not alone. The future has more light on it than ever before.”
