SUMMIT – The Coalition on Family Caregiving invites the public to attend their Fall “Living Well Series” program entitled “The Person Within – The Person Who’s Always Been” on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. at the New Providence Senior Center, 15 East Fourth Street.
Dr. Susan Neigher, psychologist, will base her discussion on John Zeisel’s book “I’m Still Here” and will share how caregivers can have a vibrant and meaningful relationship with their loved one who has a debilitating disease, including Alzheimer’s.
As caregivers devote their energies to caring for a sick loved one, they can lose sight of the person shrouded by disease. Sometimes their strengths can seem lost and their frailties exaggerated. This workshop is designed to help caregivers reconnect with the essence of the person who is ill, help them evolve in their relationship, maintain their emotional ties and grow as they adapt to change.
Dr. Neigher practices in Randolph and has extensive experience in health psychology, working with people of all ages suffering from acute and chronic diseases, pain and physical disability.
There is no charge to attend the presentation and light refreshments will be served. Advance reservations are requested by confirming your attendance by calling Becky Seasholtz at 1-908-789-1717 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You will also have an opportunity to participate in a Q&A session after the presentation.
The Coalition on Family Caregiving, formed in 2003, is a group of community-based organizations, businesses and individuals whose mission is to assist family caregivers by offering support, education and information on resources and services. Its comprehensive resource and referral network is available at no cost. For more information, visit www.cfcares.org.
