West Valley nonprofit Benevilla is excited to announce their inaugural C.A.R.E.S. Program Partners Fair that will take place in-person on Wednesday, April 6 from 9 a.m.-noon. The event will be held outdoors on the Benevilla main campus, located at 16752 N. Greasewood Street in Surprise. This free information fair provides family caregivers and those looking for help with their loved ones struggling with their independence at home with support, expert guidance, and valuable information to assist them with the challenges they may be facing.
At this event, family caregivers can get their pressing questions answered. The Benevilla C.A.R.E.S. program consists of approximately 20 local senior services providers that are trusted partners of Benevilla. The expert advice and direction from the exhibitors range from senior living options and placement to hospice and home care choices, elder law, veterans’ benefits, ALTCS, real estate, geriatric care management, fiduciary services, estate planning and supervision, and more. There will be Benevilla programs information available as well highlighting their free support groups, home services, and C.A.R.E.S. (Community Assistance, Resources, Education and Support) Resource Department. The new Benevilla “Benefitness” Adaptive Gym scheduled to open in July will be open as well for a public preview.
“Benevilla is excited to have so many local senior services experts in one place at one time to support our aging population in the Northwest Valley,” says Benevilla President and CEO, Joanne Thomson. “Today, 30-60% of caregivers pass from illnesses related to caregiver stress before the person they are caring for. That’s why getting family caregivers this type of specialized support and information is crucial for our aging communities and their families.”
