  • Cornerstone VNA offers free virtual event for family caregivers

    ROCHESTER - Cornerstone VNA is pleased to announce the return of Caregivers Connect, a special annual event that focuses on providing support and education to family caregivers.  This free virtual event, featuring a special keynote speaker, will take place on Tuesday, March 9, from 10:00am – 11:30am. 

    “We are very excited to present a virtual Caregivers Connect event this year, particularly during this isolating pandemic. We recognize that the theme of support and resilience will most surely resonate with our local family caregivers tremendously.” states Janice Howard, Director of Life Care – Private Duty at Cornerstone VNA.  Howard adds, “In addition to learning more about caregiving and the importance of self-care, this event will underscore the fact that there are other caregivers who experience similar things, giving them a strong sense of support and understanding.”

    Attendees will hear from keynote speaker, Dr. Aaron Blight, founder of Caregiving Kinetics and author of When Caregiving Calls: Guidance as You Care for a Parent, Spouse, or Aging Relative. Dr. Blight speaks with groups all over the world to share his knowledge and expertise about caregiving. In workshops and conference talks, he invites participants to think deeply about the meaning and significance of their individual caregiving experiences. Blight’s presentation will focus on “Framing the Care Experience: Foundational Support for Caregivers.”  

    The first 50 registrants will be mailed a complimentary copy of Dr. Blight’s book, When Caregiving Calls, after their attendance is confirmed on the day of the event. To register for this special event or to learn more, call 800-691-1133 x1109 or visit cornerstonevna.org/CC21
