Are you a caregiver or do you know someone who is a caregiver? If so, you know how hard it is to find balance within your life. There are many types of caregivers so, while you may not consider yourself a caregiver, chances are good that you do some caregiving.
The Grand Rapids Public Library is partnering with the Caregiver Resource Network to offer a free Fall Series on various caregiving issues. The first one is “Stress Management for Family Caregivers” to be held Thursday, September 30, from 12:15 to 1:00 pm at the Main Grand Rapids Public L.ibrary.
Other talks will be on “Mental Health Issues for Family Caregivers” to be held on Thursday, October 21, and “Hospice and End of Life Care for Family Caregivers” to be held on Thursday, November 11, 2010, also from 12:15 to 1:00 pm at the Main Grand Rapids Public Library.
We hope to see you there if this is a topic of interest to you. You might find many of the articles found on the CRN website focusing on recognizing caregiving stress and stress reduction techniques to be a helpful introduction on the issue of stress management.
