Met a speaker, Chanda Mills Crutcher, founder of American Senior Assistance Program, who really had common sense about seniors and caregiving. Her friend had wanted us to meet and we did! She even had me rap at the end of her talk.
I did my rap about helping seniors. Oh my goodness! They were recording me in the audience! Bad hair day as usual! They just needed to see this on YouTube where it is called "Technology" by my producers.
Also talked with Sally who is the 24/7 caregiver for her mom. She was on the verge of tears. I emailed several in her church who might be able to help.
One excellent workshop was on Alzheimer's proofing the home by Jason Parks, Lead Pastor & Chief Executive Officer, Refuge Church. I wish I had had that workshop years ago. If you have been following this blog you know that I went through "The House That Cleans Itself" several years ago and with each room I thought about safety for the home. Hope to get together with Jason for input on that dissertation.
This workshop was in The Cooper House auditorium -- a facility owned by the church I attend.

Back to writing my caregiving dissertation while seeing that Sally gets respite from her church.
