Meets in Youth Room
11/20/22, 11:30 AM - Caregiving
Heroes and Heroines—that’s the caregiver. Many step away. Some step up to the plate. The crush of caregiving responsibilities affects our emotions, finances, quality of life and health. Caregivers experience depression, physical ailments from either the physical demands of caregiving or its resultant stress, loss of income (that affects future Social Security income), loss of social engagement, and increasing resentfulness. Taking time for ourselves feels impossible yet it must occur. Working with the family or asking for help may feel messy at best. How can we make sense in an increasingly stressful and smothering experience? This workshop explores these emotions and tried-and-true strategies to survive this rugged experience. Presented by Elderlaw Attorney, Geriatric Care Manager and Licensed Professional Counselor Sue E. Fabian.
11/27/22, 12:00 PM - Emergency Preparedness
The power grid has gone down, or a natural or manmade disaster has occurred. A pandemic has hit. Rather than be paranoid about such events, we can become prepared. How do we prepare for such eventualities? This workshop gives action steps and resources so you can develop a practical emergency preparedness plan and identifies essential supplies to have on hand. Presented by Elderlaw Attorney, Geriatric Care Manager and Licensed Professional Counselor Sue E. Fabian.
