Benevilla, a premier West Valley family and senior services nonprofit agency, announces an exciting lineup of free educational events for caregivers and senior community members looking for information and resources, taking place now through the end of 2021.

From understanding grief and elder law planning to in-home care and estate preparation and tax tips, participants of the Benevilla C.A.R.E.S. Educational Workshops Series will receive valuable information from local industry experts who can address individual questions as well.
Here’s a look at the event schedule:

All these Benevilla events are free to attend, but reservations are required. Until further notice, Benevilla will host these educational workshops via the Zoom online platform. Each workshop features carefully selected professionals who can answer questions and provide guidance and resources you may need to prepare for senior life changes, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If CDC social distancing restrictions continue to moderate, the Benevilla Caregiver Connect event will take place as a live, in-person event on Friday, November 5 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. If public in-person gatherings are still limited, then the event will be held as a live, virtual online presentation. Attendees can join the event on Facebook Live and ask questions live at facebook.com/CityofPeoriaAZ. The event will also live stream on the web at peoriaaz.gov/PeoriaTV, and you can tune into Cox Channel 11 or Century-Link Channel 8509 to see it as well. In either format, this free educational event provides family caregivers with support, expert guidance, and valuable information to assist them on their caregiving journey.
