Caregiver Expo set Nov. 7

TOLEDO – Every day, across the area there are men and women who struggle to find care or assistance for
an aging parent or other loved ones. There are families that feel the strain of watching one parent care
for the other, and someone responsible for the care of a relative’s child.
The Area Office on Aging of Northwest Ohio can provide answers at its second annual Caregiver Expo,
slated Nov. 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the SeaGate Convention Centre in downtown Toledo.
The expo will feature over 40 area exhibitors offering information designed to help caregivers provide
medical, physical and emotional care to their aging loved ones – and much-needed support for themselves.
Author, speaker and award-winning singer/songwriter Karen Taylor-Good will deliver the keynote address.

"This is the helping hand the ‘sandwich generation’ has been looking for," states Pauline King,
Family Caregiver Support Program coordinator at the Area Office on Aging.
"If you are currently caring for a parent, grandparent or other loved one with special needs – or if
you anticipate such care in the future – then this is the event for you."
Professional respite services will also be available on site for those who require day care for a loved
one while they attend the event. To reserve respite care during the expo, contact Lorri Esper at (419)
725-7042. Registration must be made prior to the event to take advantage of this day care service.
