Caring for the Caregiver – An Ongoing Learning Experience
WHEN CARING FOR A LOVED ONE THE PERSON OFTEN IN NEED OF CARE IS YOU
Being a caregiver can be immensely satisfying and incredibly challenging at the same time. Caregiving calls on you to care for someone you love, acquire new skills, educate yourself about serious illness – and learn how to take care of yourself, too.
Victoria Landing is pleased to host an intimate learning and sharing experience led by Alex Navarro, MSW, VITAS® Healthcare. Attending a support group of caregivers and healthcare professionals is important because too often your own needs are ignored due to the constant focus on another. Feeling lonely, anxious, or tired is common and these gatherings are designed to be a community resource to avoid burnout and stress.
Open to the public, these meetings will be held on the FIRST and THIRD Wednesday of each month in Victoria Landing’s second floor conference room. For more information and to RSVP, please call Ruth Little at 321.752.2533.
