Vanderbilt Elder Care Fair to be Thursday, Sept. 20

If you provide some degree of care for anyone age 50 or older, you do not want to miss the Vanderbilt Child & Family Center third annual Elder Care Fair, Thursday, Sept. 20, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the second floor of the Round Wing of Medical Center North.

Vendors from the Council on Aging, the Alzheimer’s Association, FiftyForward, Vanderbilt Home Care, Tennessee Respite, Veteran Affairs and more will be in attendance.

The fair will also feature three brown bag seminars:
• Where Do I Start as a Caregiver?
• A Positive Approach to Caring for Family Members with Dementia
• Caregiving Without Regrets

Everyone who attends one of the brown bag seminars will receive a booklet, "Prepare to Care: A Planning Guide for Families." Attendees will also have the chance to enter to win one of the many door prizes.
