AGE of Central Texas will launch the new caregiver support conference “Caregiver Training Camp” on Saturday, February 8, 2020. Designed to help first-time, unpaid family members effectively care for an older adult, the free conference will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Williamson County EMS Training Center, located at 3189 SE Inner Loop in Georgetown.
The conference is a joint effort between regional non-profit organization AGE of Central Texas and the Williamson County EMS Community Health Paramedic program, who partnered earlier this year to help reduce repeat calls and prevents falls with older adults in the rural areas of Williamson County. The new conference will assist first-time caregivers – and in particular, those living in rural areas of Central Texas – to better manage the dynamics of their new caregiving role has been an outgrown of the partnership.
