South Jersey is home to a large number of seniors.  The rural nature of the area often makes it difficult to find and use services when needed.  Being able to educate family caregivers of area seniors, and give families tools and strategies that will immediately make their lives as caregivers more productive, is the reason for the Friends Village/Home to Stay partnership to make Dr. Carson’s program possible.
Verna Carson is a nurse educator and assistant professor at Towson University.  She has published numerous articles in respected medical publications and is sought after as a guest speaker for conferences and programs throughout the country.  In 2011, Dr. Carson produced a DVD and workbook focusing on managing challenging behaviors.
