A Caregiver’s Journey

Tuesday, November 13, 8:30 – 3:30, Bartlett Station Municipal Center (5868 Stage Rd.) Alzheimer’s & Dementia Services of Memphis, Inc. presents “A Caregiver’s Journey:  The Garden in Our Backyard” Caregiver Conference.  This conference is free for Caregivers; there is a $20.00 fee for professionals who will receive a certificate for 6 contact hours. On-site care for registered loved ones is provided free by Senior Helpers. Brunswick Senior Behavioral Health at Lakeside is the Azalea sponsor for this year’s event.

There is no question that the journey of those who have a loved one with dementia can be an extremely challenging one. Alzheimer’s & Dementia Services (ADS) provides the annual Caregiver Conference as part of its mission to provide support, education and resources, turning an arduous journey into a manageable one, raising awareness of the garden in your backyard and hopefully assisting caregivers to even smell the roses.  Whether your loved one is at home or in a facility, in early or advanced stages of dementia, this conference is for you.

From caring comes courage.

Amazon’s Past Reveals the Future of FedEx

I was sitting down with a friend who works in sales at FedEx a few years ago and I brought up the question of Amazon replacing FedEx as a dominant player in shipping. My friend said that would never happen. FedEx isn’t worried about Amazon. At that time Amazon Prime was new. Amazon had just purchased a fleet of jets and trailers for shipping. A look at Amazon’s past was like the handwriting on the wall for me.
