Caring for Caregivers: Senior Friendship Center

The Giving Coast

According to the AARP, 2.7 million caregivers in Florida provide unpaid care valued at $40 billion in 2023 and an estimated 17-35% of family caregivers view their health as fair to the poor. By 2045, 1 in 5 Sarasota County residents will be 80 and older and will require daily assistance from at least one caregiver. To address the growing needs of caregivers, Senior Friendship Centers brings back the Caregiver’s Forum. The event features a keynote from international speaker Dr. Rivera, “The Dementia Doc,” and a Q&A panel from local caregiving experts.

Caregiver’s Forum, Senior Friendship Centers – Sarasota Campus | 1888 Brother Geenen Way, Sarasota, Saturday, February 17, 2024 | 9:30 AM – 1:00 PM.
