Are you caring for a mother with Alzheimer’s, a spouse with heart disease or a frail grandparent with a broken hip? If you’re among the 66 million Americans who have taken on the role of family caregiver, you know the stress and anxiety that go along with the job. Caregivers need comprehensive information and help to make their jobs more manageable.

To provide family caregivers with practical solutions and strategies, Cona Elder Law and the Hofstra University School of Law invite you to attend our FREE Caregiver Conference.

At the conference, you will learn how to navigate the system of available benefits, explore community programs and care options, learn how to engage in proper planning to protect assets, and determine the best way to finance needed care and services. You will also get practical tips and advice on providing quality living for your loved one.
