Are you caring for spouse, parent, friend or sibling? Do you feel stressed or isolated due to your care-giving situation? Would you like to learn more about community resources available to help caregivers? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, the Older Adult Caregivers’ Support Group meets quarterly from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. in the Witherspoon Room (CC-130).
This group is a safe place where caregivers can share their experiences and learn from each other. Guest speakers are invited to meetings to share information on specific topics such as adult day centers and stress management.
May 22 Meeting:
Gretchen Geagan, MSHA, CMC, Life-Links Geriatric Care Management, will speak on “Keys to Successful Aging: How to Determine if Care at Home or at a Retirement Community is Best for You or a Loved One.” Independent Living, Health Care Centers, Retirement Communities, Memory Care, Medical Home Health Care, Non-Medical In-home Care, Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing Facilities, Sitters, Intermediate Care Facilities, Nursing Homes–there are more choices and options available to older adults as they age than ever before. While increasing options mean you are more likely to find something you like, they also mean making a decision can be overwhelming. Gretchen will provide you with information and tools to navigate the maze of options and create a plan to work best for you and your aging loved one(s).
