Care for the Caregiver – PUBLIC Copy


Event Details


Do you take care of a loved one? It’s a huge job that doesn’t come with job training. You don’t have to go it alone. In fact, it’s much better if you don’t!. You need caregiver support.

Join us to learn techniques to help you cope with the rewarding, but often overwhelming, job of caregiving. These caregiver support classes use writing and other creative techniques to give you tools to take care of yourself too. The classes also connect local caregivers, who are working thought the same issues.

The sessions are led by Lori Lemasters, an expert in caregiver coping techniques, both by training and through her own experience. She’s joined us before to great reviews and we are excited to have her back again.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to attend one of her classes, now is your chance. People come away re-energized and looking forward to the next session.  You’ll benefit from the company of other caregivers and come away empowered with new ways to approach caregiving. Come take a few minutes for yourself.

 

The sessions are free and open to the public.

Classes meet every third Thursday of the month through June.
