Breakfast/Networking at 9 a.m. Presentation 10-11 a.m.

Join us in this informative, light-hearted and ongoing experience of two women who opened their home and hearts to a 90-year old. You'll laugh, cry and feel the joy of personalities, stories and lessons. Attendees will learn tips and tricks that make life easier for their client and for themselves.

Presenters: Adrienne Hardt, a massage therapist, raised five children in the late 90's, while caring for her mother-in-law, who had dementia. These combined experiences allowed her to move ably and joyfully in the care of her 90 years "young" housemate. Coral Brus grew up in a military family living all over the world and, upon returning to the states, worked at rejuvenating properties and loved it. As a certified nurse assistant in a community hospital, she took care of elderly patients but preferred being a "Handy Ma'am" working in numerous senior living communities where she met their current housemate.
