Caregivers Find Resources at Conference
Event at WITC Brought Back an Old Conference for Caregivers
SUPERIOR, Wis. – Wisconsin Indianhead Techinical College hosted a one–stop shop for caregivers Tuesday.
At the Caregiver Conference, sponsored by the Caregivers Coalition, both professional and at–home caregivers could learn from speakers, vendors and other community resources.
WITC used to hold an annual Caregiver Conference and organizers wanted to bring it back.
“We had service providers come together, we haven’t done this in a while,” said Erika Leif of the Douglas County Aging & Disability Resource Center. “So trying to get this back up and running, grow it, make it a good resource for the community.”
Tuesday’s conference also focused on how caregivers can care for themselves.
