Many of us are caregivers for our elderly parents. We take care of their medical issues and finances. We are also very wary of the potential they could be victims of financial and physical abuse. Stew Cohen talks to Glynnis Walker Anderson on how her own mother was the victim of elder abuse and fraud. Anderson is the author of Stealing Joy: A True Story of Alzheimer's, Elder Abuse and Fraud.
On July 25 at the McHenry County Mental Health Board at 620 Dakota St. in Crystal Lake, Illinois, representatives of churches, schools, businesses, non profits, other organizations, and individuals are encouraged to attend a session on disaster preparedness. Ask yourself whether you are prepared for a manmade or a natural disaster. Also ask yourself whether your organization has an up-to-date disaster plan and what tools to keep your home, organization and community safe. The Volunteer Center McHenry County has organized a workshop to answer these questions and help you prepare for a disaster. Register today at Volunteercentermchenrycounty.org (under the workshop tab.) For more information, email email@example.com. Stew Cohen interviews Joy Medrano, Director of Volunteer Engagement and Disaster Preparedness and Roger Dart, Conference Disaster Coordinator Illinois Conference for Disaster Ministries. They tell Cohen they want people to be aware of certain situations and have a disaster plan in place.
