The May support group has been cancelled. Please check back or contact Curtis Jones for future meetings.
Lawrence Presbyterian Manor and Visiting Nurses Association (VNA) are partnering to sponsor a caregiver support group. VNA is a community-based organization that has served the Lawrence and Douglas County community for over 50 years.
The meetings may start with a brief informational session on the topic for the evening followed by a discussion where attendees will be encouraged to talk openly about the topic. The topic for May is, "How to Manage the Holidays and other Special Events."
Monthly meetings may touch on such topics as dementia, coping with the holidays or changes in roles (i.e. an adult child becoming caregiver for a parent).
Caregivers from the community as well as family members of residents are invited to attend. If you have questions, or would like to RSVP, please contact Kim Trupia, Social Services Director at Lawrence Presbyterian Manor (785) 841-4262; or Brittany Klinger, Medical Social Director at Visiting Nurses of Douglas County at (785) 843-3738.
Upcoming topics include:
June 18 – Caregiver Burnout and How to Avoid It
