Andrade, who has 40 years of experience in providing individualized services to caregivers and currently works as the Senior Family Consultant for Health Projects Center – Del Mar Caregiver Resource Center. 

Geiger manages the delivery of all Alzheimer’s Association activities, programs, and services in the tri-county area, while overseeing operations of both the Monterey and Santa Cruz offices, building partnerships and working collaboratively with health and community organizations, government entities and volunteers, says a press release from the Community Foundation. 

Andrade is a 1974 graduate of Gavilan College with an LVN certificate. As a site director for an adult daycare program, Andrade joined the Health Projects Center’s team. 

The workshop will take place at the Community Foundation Epicenter San Andreas Conference Room, 440 San Benito Street in Hollister. Two workshop sessions will take place: one from 11:30am-1pm and one from 5:30-7pm and attendees can choose which session to attend.
