Comprised of area care and services professionals, this Partnership is dedicated to connecting caregivers of persons with dementia to the support and services they need to prevent caregiver burden and burnout - increasing the quality of life for the individuals we serve.

"Caregivers: This Day is for You" is the theme of a free day of workshops for caregivers set for (Saturday) Nov. 5 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Millennium Airport Hotel, 2040 Walden Ave., Cheektowaga. The event is sponsored by the Western New York Alzheimer's Caregiver Partnership (WNYACP) and the Erie County Caregiver Coalition.

Caregivers will learn ways to reduce stress and make everyday chores easier. Whether caring for a loved one who is physically frail or one who has memory loss, participants will find useful information. Workshops include Legal and Financial Issues, The Cost of Care, Creating a Back-Up Plan and Laughter Yoga.
