MOUNT PLEASANT, N.Y. -- County Executive Rob Astorino announced that the Mount Pleasant Community Center will host a Caregiver's Conference on Saturday, Nov. 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The free conference will address the emotional and physical challenges caregivers face in providing for loved ones of all ages.
Keynote speakers will be Beth and Nick Wyman, who will talk at 11 a.m. about their journey of caring for a mentally and physically disabled child at their home and an ill parent who lived a distance away.
The conference will also offer caregivers free, 15-minute, one-on-one consultations with elder law attorneys, geriatric care managers and social workers.
“Family caregivers have big responsibilities and deserve our support,” Astorino said in a statement. “I hope as many as possible will find time to attend this very worthwhile event.”
The Mount Pleasant Community Center is located at 125 Lozza Drive in Valhalla.
