Finding Gratitude and Meaning in Family Caregiving

SRQ Story Project Partner Spotlight

BY SRQ DAILY FRESHLY SQUEEZED CONTENT EVERY MORNING WEDNESDAY NOV 9, 2016

On Friday December 2, JFCS of the Suncoast will host a free seminar featuring Dr. Barry Jacobs and Dr. Julia Mayer, authors of the book AARP Meditations for Caregivers at 9:30am. Over 40 million Americans are providing unpaid care to their family members and friends each year, often without hesitation or complaint. However, caregiving does pose formidable emotional and logistical challenges.

Sharing their experiences as both seasoned caregivers and clinical psychologists, Dr. Barry Jacobs and Dr. Julia Mayer will discuss solutions to the difficult challenges associated with caregiving. Through the power of personal caregiving stories, they will discuss techniques for stress management as well as acknowledge your limitations, seeking encouragement and learning to look at the big picture—providing a myriad of tips to make caregiving easier.

Space is limited! RSVP to Caregiving Helpline at  941-364-7560.
