CARING FOR THE CAREGIVER WORKSHOP - October/November

Catholic Charities Senior & Caregiver Support Services will be hosting a six-week telephone workshop entitled “Caring for the Caregiver- Know How to Take Care of You”.   The program goes for 6 weeks starting Tuesday, October 20 and runs through Tuesday, November 24, 2020 from 1pm to 2:30pm. This program is designed to help caregivers recognize their own needs as they care for their loved one.

This is an educational workshop that will leave the caregiver with resources, techniques and action plans to be the best caregiver they can be. Topics that will be discussed will be, “I’m a Caregiver, now what?”, “Respite, what is it and do I need it?”, “Falls Prevention and staying safe”, “How do I care for myself while caring for my loved one?”, “Caregiver stress, how do I manage it” and “When to have the difficult conversations”. 

The 6-part telephone workshop is FREE but registration is required. Please call 518-372-5667 x205 by October 14, 2020.
