Being a Caregiver can be incredibly rewarding. It can also be one of the most difficult and isolating times a person can go through. If you are caring for a family member and have ever experienced frustration, sadness, guilt or anxiety through your caregiving journey, you are not alone. Take the opportunity to meet other caregivers to share your experiences, and learn strategies to reduce your stress. Please RSVP to Miranda Dold (Miranda.Dold@nuvancehealth.org) if you plan to attend either or both sessions.
