  1. I am unable to attend, but would love to have more information re this topic..Please share with us after you attend. I love you blog! Keep up the good work. I facilitate 6 caregiver education, skills and support groups per month. I appreciate any information I can pass on to these dedicated caregivers. I was the primary care-giver for my father for 7 years and it was the hardest job I never ask for.
