Free Medical Advocacy Program for Caregivers
Caregiver Survival Skills is a free educational series presented by the Mountain Caregivers Resource Group. June’s topic, “Medical Advocacy for Caregivers,” will be presented by Janine Guillen, a Registered Nurse, attorney and MBA who is president of the board of directors at Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice.
The program is designed to teach caregivers how to make sure their loved ones get the best possible medical care. Among other things, participants will learn how and why medical advocacy could save a loved one’s life, how to communicate effectively with medical personnel, how to prevent medical errors, and how to be a “medical detective.”
The free program will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21, at the Evergreen Fire & Rescue Administration Building, 1802 Bergen Parkway, Evergreen. (This is a revised date—the program was rescheduled from June 28.)
Reservations are recommended. For more information or to RSVP, call 303-674-6400.
