Every day at the Penn Memory Center, we hear our patients’ caregivers describe the emotional, physical, and legal challenges they face tending to their loved ones. We’re here to help.
In 2019, we are offering a speaker series. Caregivers will have access to area experts who will present on a variety of intensive topics from in-home activities to end of life care. Each talk is free and capped at 30 guests. Priority will be given to those caring for patients of the Penn Memory Center. RSVP is required.
To RSVP, contact Felicia Greenfield, MSW, LCSW, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-662-4523 and note which workshop(s) you’d like to attend.
