Care Connection, is a national telephone support network for family and professional caregivers sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America—a national non-profit organizations whose mission is to provide optimal care and services to individuals affected by dementia and their families.
“It is an honor to have been selected to participate in the AFA’s Care Connection program” says Matt Gurwell, founder of Keeping Us Safe. “Addressing the issue of a driving retirement with a loved one can be a very sensitive and emotional issue and must be handled with tact, empathy and compassion. I am very excited to for the opportunity to share some helpful tips and suggestions with Care Connection listeners.”
Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Keeping Us Safe is a national organization with a mission of providing practical, real-life solutions to older drivers and their families as they face the challenging issue of age-related diminishing driving skills. “Our ‘Beyond Driving with Dignity’ program provides concerned families with the missing link between their desire to bring the driving issue to a peaceful resolution, and their ability to actually do so.” Gurwell added.
Care Connection allows family caregivers and professionals nationwide to gain valuable education from guest speakers on a vast array of topics as well as to connect with other caregivers from across the country. Plus, they can get much-needed help and advice from the comfort of their own homes or jobs. As well, Care Connection offers CEUs for professionals who are part of our Dementia Care Professionals of America division.
