Seminar: Caring for the Caregiver
Thursday, April 26, 2018 from 2-3:30 pm

Located at The Center at Founders Village
Being a caregiver can be both rewarding and challenging. Caregivers who don’t take time for self-care can experience depleted energy, sleep problems, depression and compromised health. It’s important to remember that caregivers need care too. A physician with MemorialCare Medical Group will join us to discuss this important topic and provide practical self-care tips for caregivers. To reserve your seat, visit memorialcare.org or call 1-800-MEMORIAL (1-800-636-6742).
