Almost 200 people turned out today in Port Charlotte for a Caregivers Conference - hosted by the AARP. The event was along the lines of a two hour pep-rally. Seniors, struggling to care for ailing partners, heard from motivational speakers. Topping the list was Dr. William H. Thomas, a gerontologist who promotes holistic approaches to aging, and the care of older people. He’s also the author of “What are old people for? How elders will save the world”. He spoke to WGCU’s Valerie Alker.
