UNION — For many caregivers, taking care of an elderly or chronically ill loved one is a job for which they feel unprepared. It is a task that often requires physical, emotional and spiritual strength along with patience and stamina.
Barnabas Health Hospice and Palliative Care Center will host a free workshop, “A Time for You: Caring for the Caregiver,” on Tuesday, Nov. 29, from 7–8 p.m. at the Union Public Library located at 1980 Morris Avenue. Registration is not required.
“Caregivers frequently report feelings of isolation, loneliness and uncertainty,” says Mary Murray, RN, Barnabas Health Hospice and Palliative Care Center. “Giving caregivers a place to share concerns and questions is the focus of the workshop. Topics will range from practical concerns, such as how to bathe someone, to emotional issues such as sadness and anxiety.”
For more information call the library’s reference department at 1-908-851-5452.
