Caregivers or those who will become caregivers in the near future for a loved one, do not want to miss the Fort Bend Museum Docents program, Saturday, May 11, at the Gus George Academy, 1521 Eugene Heimann Circle, Richmond. Mix and mingle begins at 9:30 a.m. with program and business meeting to follow at 10:00 a.m.
The program entitled “Falling Through the Cracks,” will be presented by Joan Kayser-Murray.
In 1988 Joan’s husband was diagnosed with end stage Renal Disease. Joan became his patient advocate and caregiver until his death in 1992. She was also a long distance caregiver and patient advocate for her mother after her mother became a resident of a senior living complex in 2002 until her death in 2010.
Joan’s company, Geriatric Connections, was formed after the death of her mother to communicate her first-hand knowledge of all the caregiver, patient advocate, Social Security, Medicare, other insurance and elder care needs to other family and friends.
“Falling Through the Cracks” is a program about resolution of the problems before they happen to you or your loved ones.
Visitors are welcome to attend this free presentation. For additional information contact the Fort Bend Museum at 281-342-6478.
