Warman Home Care is proud to sponsor a unique continuing education event for social workers and related professionals: Art Therapy for the Elderly. This program will explore how art therapy benefits seniors and how it can be a valuable self-care strategy for social workers as well. It is a fascinating topic.
This program will be scheduled for the upcoming months, so please let us know if you are interested in attending, and we’ll keep in touch. Contact the event host, Nina at Iona Senior Services, at 202-895-9479 or email her at email@example.com. In addition to the program, Warman Home Care will also provide lunch.

We wanted to share the fantastic work the Alzheimer’s Family Day Center provides in northern Virginia. At Warman Home Care we’ve come to know executive director Nancy Dezan and the unique services this not-for-profit organization offers. It is an Adult Day Health Care facility for early, middle and late stage Alzheimer’s patients. Located in Fairfax, VA, it is the only center of its kind in the Washington DC area and the only northern Virginia day care facility that works with late stage Alzheimer patients.
They also provide valuable caregiver education, host support groups and offer a range of preventive and intervention programs. If you, or someone you know is dealing with a family member with Alzheimer’s – at any stage, this group has fantastic resources to help.
Contact Nancy at 703-204-4664 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Ask about their “Caregiving at a Glance” publication – it’s a comprehensive, but easy reading guidebook that has been compiled through their work over the last 20 years. It’s aimed at helping family caregivers navigate this difficult time with sound insights, suggestions and perspective.
