GRA­SONVILLE — The Queen Anne’s County Mary­land Ac­cess Point of­fice will of­fer a free con­fer­ence for se­niors, in­di­vid­u­als with dis­abil­i­ties, and care­givers on Thurs­day, Oct. 5, at the Hol­i­day Inn Ex­press.

At­ten­dees will hear pre­sen­ta­tions on “Ad­just­ing the Sails.” The open­ing key­note speaker, Jen­nifer Fitz­patrick, “Smoother Sail­ing: Nav­i­gat­ing Care­giv­ing On A Bud­get,” will set the tone for the con­fer­ence by help­ing older adults and their fam­ily care­givers iden­tify some of the ma­jor stres­sors, par­tic­u­larly with bud­get, in­volved in care­giv­ing. At­ten­dees will leave this pre­sen­ta­tion with strate­gies on how to get what they need for them­selves or their loved ones with­out go­ing broke.

Other top­ics in­clude ex­er­cis­ing with a dis­abil­ity or af­ter surgery, nutri­tion, aging in place and dis­as­ter pre­pared­ness. There will be ven­dor re­sources, give­aways, free door prizes and free lunch.

Free light break­fast and doors open at 9 a.m., and the con­fer­ence is from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Space is lim­ited; at­ten­dees must reg­is­ter by Sept. 22.

For more in­for­ma­tion and to reg­is­ter, con­tact Shelby Clark, 410-758-1040 or sclark@qac.org.
