Lawrence Presbyterian Manor and Visiting Nurses Association (VNA) are partnering to sponsor a virtual caregiver support group on the third Thursdays of each month.
The topic for the August meeting, which will be at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, August 20, will be “The New Normal: Managing the Changing Roles of Caregiving in a Covid World.”
The group will meet using Zoom at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, August 20.
️ Since this will be a virtual meeting, please contact Kim Trupia, Social Services Director at Lawrence Presbyterian Manor (785) 371-0577; or Brittany Klinger, Medical Social Director at Visiting Nurses of Douglas County at (785) 843-3738, and then you will be emailed the Zoom link.
Meetings start with a brief informational session on the topic for the evening, followed by a discussion where attendees are encouraged to talk openly about the topic. 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. Use our event page to invite your friends: fb.com/events/197355824741024.
