Workshops to provide support for family caregivers

0

Caregivers know the stress and exhaustion that accompanies compassionate care. Caregivers can gain support and actions to strengthen their important work at Family Caregiving Workshops presented by Pierce County Aging & Disability Resource Center with the Pierce County Library System.

An estimated 43.5 million adults in the U.S. play a caregiver role in households across the country, according to a Caregiving in the U.S. 2015 study. Those in Pierce County who care for children, sick, elderly or disabled loved ones will benefit from attending a workshop.

Participants are invited to engage in facilitated conversations about a variety of caregiving topics throughout November, National Family Caregivers Month.
