Community Cares for Caregivers: Above & Beyond Getting Through
Sponsored by Community Nurse Private Care.
Community Cares for Caregivers: Above & Beyond Getting Through was developed to not only support family and friends who have undertaken the task of caring for a loved one but to enhance the caregiving relationship. Caregiving can be stressful but can also lead to increased satisfaction in the relationship. With an aging Baby-Boomer generation, our healthcare systems are more taxed, increasing the likelihood that we will enter in to a caregiving relationship. Learn useful techniques to make caregiving more fulfilling.
Above and Beyond Getting Through presenters include:
- Patricia Midurski, R.N. on navigating caregiving for loved one’s with dementia when no roadmap is available;
- Janice Warr, R.N. on aromatherapy and other complementary therapies to augment the caregiving relationship; and,
- Jennifer Marszalek, LICSW, on healthy methods for coping with grief and loss.
Community Cares for Caregivers is being offered three consecutive Wednesdays: January 23, 30, and February 6th at the Dartmouth Council on Aging OR three consecutive Mondays: February 25, March 4, and 11 at the Fairhaven Council on Aging.
