For those balancing the responsibilities of work and caregiving for an aging or disabled relative or friend, the sixth annual Family Caregiver Fair will be held on May 12.

The fair is sponsored by WorkLife Programs, along with partners CIGNA, CityBus, Homecare by Design, Trilogy Health Services, and NeoVision.

The fair aims to help by providing a variety of local experts, ranging from campus and community experts to local businesses, who can answer questions and provide information about caring for an aging or disabled relative or friend.

Information will be available on health care, respite care, caregiver health, legal issues, nutrition, advocacy, financial planning, medication, home health care, transportation, and products and services available to caregivers. A list of vendors is available here.

The event is open to the campus and community and will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the South Ballroom, Purdue Memorial Union.
