Centennial, CO (PRWEB) June 02, 2014

Home Care Assistance of Centennial, Southeast Suburban Denver’s leading provider of in-home care for seniors, is committed to equipping family caregivers with the resources and tools they need to provide the best care possible for their aging love ones, while simultaneously ensuring their own health. The next installment in the company’s Healthy Longevity webinar series is ideal for individuals caring for someone with a form of dementia. Led by certified dementia specialist and best-selling author Carol Howell, the hour-long webinar will cover various forms of dementia and caregiving tips presented in her latest book, Let’s Talk Dementia – A Caregiver’s Guide. A caregiver herself, Carol will discuss her personal experience with well-researched knowledge to provide support, humor and hands-on tips for coping with the challenges and emotions that come with caring for a loved one with dementia.

The webinar will be held on Thursday, June 12th, at 11:00 AM Mountain, 1 PM Eastern. Carol will reserve the last 15 minutes of the webinar for a Q&A session, so we encourage webinar attendees to come prepared with questions. Space is limited, so make sure to reserve your seat as soon as possible by registering here: http://bit.ly/1jJsY1J.

Caregiving has rapidly become a second profession for many individuals; nearly one in three adults provides ongoing care to an elderly or chronically frail loved one. The typical family caregiver is a 50 year old female, often married and employed, providing care for her elderly mother and father. Family caregivers are often juggling commitments to their work, their children, their families and friends, and their communities in addition to their caregiving responsibilities. Furthermore, they often lack or do not know where to seek the resources and support system needed to manage the stress associated with their responsibilities.

“We’re very pleased to have Mrs. Howell speak to our audience of family caregivers,” said Pete Lane, Owner of Home Care Assistance of Centennial. “Taking care of a loved one with dementia can be both physically and emotionally draining. The tips and strategies that Carol will be sharing will be valuable and will hopefully offer a sense of relief and reassurance. Educating the public about dementia care and providing caregivers with the tools to reduce burnout and improve quality of life is clearly in line with our mission to change the way the world ages."

After her husband’s closed-head injury in 1996 and her mother’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s in 2006, Carol began her study of the brain and the various forms of dementia that exist. Through her company, Senior Life Journeys, she is actively involved in the lives of individuals who are caring for a loved one with dementia. An Endorsed Music Therapy Coach, Carol works with dementia patients through Choral Music Therapy, Memory Music Therapy and Hospice Music Therapy. She also wrote the best-seller If My Body Is A Temple, Why Am I Eating Doughnuts?

The upcoming webinar is part of Home Care Assistance’s widely acclaimed Healthy Longevity Webinar Series, which has featured experts in a wide range of health and wellness-related fields. Past speakers include Dr. Gary Small, a New York Times best-selling author and expert in brain health, renowned cardiologists Drs. Marc Gillinov and Steven Nissen from the Cleveland Clinic and Head of the Cleveland Clinic’s Stroke Program Dr. Shazam Hussain, among others. The premise driving Home Care Assistance’s webinar series is that individuals who are well-informed will make better health decisions, become active partners with their healthcare providers in promoting their own wellbeing and encourage loved ones to also engage in healthy lifestyle behaviors.
