Dinner and... "Caregiving"


Caregiving can be very rewarding but the stress that comes with it cannot be denied. Some spouses, adult children and family members are providing care 24 hours a day. Adult children are especially challenged as they care for elderly parents, meet the demands of their young family and manage career responsibilities.

Message from John & Barb Wenig:

The grief and bereavement period that follows a death can add new communication challenges and adjustments for married couples and a family. Whether the death be a miscarriage, stillbirth, death of a child, sibling or parent, grief manifests itself in unique ways. John and Barb Wenig will share their experiences that followed the deaths of their oldest son and each of their parents. “

Participants will also learn to: recognize signs of caregiver fatigue, use tools to support self-care and identify available resources. You will also learn how hospice services support your loved one and you- the caregiver. No need to be alone with your worries and increasing responsibilities. Help is available!
