Finding Gratitude and Meaning in Family Caregiving

Wednesday, March 22, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Members & guests – free
More than 43 million Americans are currently estimated to be serving in caregiving roles, and that number is expected to rapidly increase each year. Though caregiving is undoubtedly difficult, Dr. Barry Jacobs and Dr. Julia Mayer say that with the right mindset-the role can not only be manageable, but deeply rewarding. The presenters will share their own stories and the stories of many featured in their new AARP Meditations for Caregivers, inspiring attendees in ways to reframe caregiving into a positive experience of real personal growth, increased family closeness, and above all, greater meaning.
