For many caregivers, taking care of an elderly or chronically ill loved one is a job for which they feel unprepared. It is a task that often requires physical, emotional and spiritual strength along with patience and stamina.
Barnabas Health Hospice hosts a free monthly caregiver workshop titled, Care for the Caregiver: A Time for You. The program is held the first Wednesday of every month from 10 to 11 a.m. at the Barnabas Health Hospice offices, located at 95 Old Short Hills Road in West Orange. Registration is not required. Attendees are encouraged to drop in any time during the 60-minute session.
