    Join us for the first of five, free workshops aimed at helping family caregivers manage stress and access quality health information for their loved ones.

    Who should attend?  Family caregivers of people with long-term illnesses or disabilities. 

    What will participants learn?  You will learn how to use practical stress management techniques and a free online resource for reliable, up-to-date health information.

    This workshop will also help participants understand:

    • the importance of caregivers,
    • the need for care,
    • the nature of the caring relationship, and
    • the rewards and difficulties faced by caregivers.

    About “Caring for You Caring for Me”: The series is adapted from the Rosalyn Carter Institute’s award-winning, evidence-informed Caring for You, Caring for Me program for caregivers. For more information about the entire program, click here.
