On January 24, 2015, Caregiving Matters produced a full day workshop with experts speaking on a variety of Power of Attorney topics as part of our

Workshops topics varied from incontinence management and foot care to gardening, living on a farm, and home modifications to keep seniors and those with disabilities living safely at home.
