About the seminar: Join us for the 2019 Annual Sawyer County Caregiver and Dementia Conference. Keynote speaker Moira Kneer will present The Unexpected Caregiver on the Yellow Brick Road and will lead you into a day packed with information on medications, nutrition and legal issues concerning caregiving. In addition, author and speaker Jim Adams will present Other Me's: My Caregiver Experience with Lewy Body Dementia.  You will leave empowered with the knowledge you need to boost your skills and mindset to prepare for yet another season in this critical field of caregiving.

Sessions include:

  • The Unexpected Caregiver on the Yellow Brick Road, Moira Kneer

    • Most caregivers never planned to be in this role. Many do not even identify themselves as caregivers. Like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, they often find themselves in strange country looking for answers. There is help and hope.

  • Introducing Pharmacists to your Care Team, Amber Smith, Pharmacy Manager, Market Place Pharmacy

    • The presentation will provide tools and resources for caregivers to ease the management of medications as well as address the health and wellbeing of the caregiver.

  • Other Me’s: My Caregiver Experience with Lewy Body Dementia, Jim Adams

    • Other Me’s is a detailed, personal account of how one man and his family dealt with the effects of Lewy Body Dementia with Parkinson’s Disease during the last two years of his wife Diane’s life.

  • Nutrition

  • Panel Discussion
