Founder Patricia Bailey said, She Ages Well©, a Dallas community outreach online resource for caregivers, will feature seminars on healthy lifestyle tips for caregivers, Alzheimer’s Facts, finding a home for Mom/Dad, understanding hospice and palliative care, healthy hair and cancer plus special caregiver product demonstrations. Visitors to the expo also will get a chance to meet vendors who will offer products and services. The day wraps up with a Caregiver Party with A Plan, featuring a Sock Hop & Caregiver Slide.
As part of the event, Blake will speak on ‘Managing Caregiver Stress’. Blake has appeared on such hit Reality TV Shows such as the "Braxton Family Values", "Real Housewives of Atlanta", and the "Preachers of Atlanta". She is a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 30 years of experience. She also has written a book The Single Married Woman and writes a weekly column “Ask Dr. Sherry" for Essence.com.
“I’m excited to be a part of such an important event,” said Blake, founder of Edge Empowerment Foundation (EEF), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to reduce mental health stigma, increase mental health awareness, and promote mental wellness in underserved populations. “Taking care of a loved one is stressful and we need to support caregivers every step along the way.
Bailey said Blake’s involvement adds an important element to the Expo. “Her work in raising awareness about mental health is so appropriate because when you’re a caregiver, you don’t take the time to properly take care of yourself.”
