Oct. 13 Caregiver Support Forum to Feature Multi-ethnic Panel

October 11, 2012

The caregiver support forum "A Hopeful Future: Giving Care from a Multi-ethnic Perspective," will feature a multi-ethnic panel on Saturday, Oct. 13, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the United Methodist Conference Center, 1276 Halyard Drive, West Sacramento, CA, 95691.

The forum will include a morning workshop on "Movement with Meaning" - a technique for working with early and mid-stage Alzheimer's persons.
The afternoon will feature a Multi-ethnic panel of eight speakers, the Revs. Wilson DeOcera, Jae Haeng Choi, William Chou, and Bobby Jones, along with Jean Kanemoto, Sade Williams, Derek Rainbow, and Latu Koloto who will be sharing their respective culture's views on aging, caregiving, and caregiver support.
Attendees will learn how the faith of the different ethnic cultures influences their views and will have the opportunity to share their own faith.
Thanks to a grant from the United Methodist General Board of Discipleship (GBOD), the forum will be free of charge and lunch will be served.
