On Wednesday, November 16, 7 - 8:30 p.m. at the Fishers Library CICOA, a caregivers support service, will present a workshop for caregivers and the people who care about them. The function of family care giving effects all of us. Neighbors, extended family, church congregations, employers, taxpayers...every segment of society stands to be dramatically effected by family care giving and can be helped by CICOA's engaging, free workshop.Library: Fishers Library
Family caregivers - people who are caring for an elderly or a disabled loved one - contribute to the U.S. economy an estimated $450 billion annually in uncompensated time and services, making them a critical extension of our formal health care system. Providing the encouragement, support, information, and resources they need to remain healthy and strong for their care giving tasks is a wise investment for all of us. When caregivers receive the support they need, communities are strengthened and we all benefit.
Join us for this free workshop because as former First Lady Rosalynn Carter said in her book "Helping Yourself Help Others" there are only four kinds of people, those who have been caregivers, those who currently are caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers.
Registration is requested but not required. To register call the library at 776-6939 or online at www.hepl.in.us.
