Elder Care Summit

assisting families and their elderly members as they age together
EARLY BIRD Registration Opens June 28th!

The Summit

Join us for the 2nd Elder Care Summit hosted by The Family Tree on Friday, August 6, 2021, at the UL Student Union. The event will be offered both in-person* and virtually!

The Elder Care Summit will provide tools, guidance, support, and actionable steps to lessen frustrations and improve efficiency in the caregiving role for medical and familial persons and for the elder. The speakers will address the challenging experience of elder care and share tools, identify resources, and discuss various elder care scenarios so that attendees can better understand the stressors, struggles, and everyday difficulties of both early and late stages of aging.

*Please note that in-person education and learning will adhere to the State of Louisiana COVID-19 guidelines and protocols.
