Family caregivers provide untold millions of dollars in uncompensated care each year. They make it possible for their loved ones who are ill to remain at home in comfortable and familiar surroundings and out of costly institutions. It is a bittersweet journey of love and commitment that often brings overwhelming challenges.
Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will offer a series of four caregiver workshops this summer to help those who are caring for a family member or a loved one who is ill. The workshops will address the concerns of caregivers and the tremendous toll it takes on them — physically, emotionally and financially. The workshops will be held in Suite 114 at the Health and Wellness Center at iPark, 761 Main Avenue, Norwalk. All will take place from 3 to 4 p.m.
