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.

    I heard about these trainings from Nancy Miller, Activities Director at the Dartmouth COA. She is very excited about it. I will try to get to them, but I usually have other committments on Wednesdays. I wish we could have them video-taped and put on our web site?
