Caregivers’ journeys followed in the Foxborough area

April 21, 2013 by  

Caring for a loved one who exhibits signs of disorientation and confusion, becomes agitated for no apparent reason, and finds simple tasks suddenly challenging can be a heartbreaking and stressful undertaking, which is why a timely seminar will soon take place at the Mansfield Adult Day Center.

‘Coping with the Challenging Behaviors of Dementia’ is a program of Community VNA (which is ranked in the top 5% of home care organizations in the U.S.). Dr. Terry Ruby, PhD, PT, and an unparalleled expert in geriatric care will provide valuable information on coping with the aforementioned behaviors.

In addition, Dr. Ruby will offer guidance and instruction as to how one can best assist and engage victims of dementia. During the program, questions and concerns from the audience are welcomed and encouraged. This educational event is open to anyone and is free of charge. Pre-registration is advisable by calling: 508-339-2119.

As will no doubt be pointed out within any promotional flyer printing projects for the Community VNA, the caring, qualified nurses, trained home health care aides, rehabilitation specialists, domestic engineers, and fitting companions there have cared for seniors and adults in the privacy of their homes since 1911. Adult day care health services are available as a community resource for the elderly and disabled adults in the Foxborough and Mansfield area.

For further information regarding care-giving and adult day health programs, log on to Community VNA’s website where an online list of its services and history is available for viewing. The event will be held on April 25, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.
