Faith and Spirituality in the Caregiving Journey: Friday, May 27, 2-3 p.m. Virtual
For many family caregivers and their loved ones who are experiencing severe illness or are at the end-of-life, faith and spiritual beliefs are powerful factors in coping with illness, pain, suffering, and loss. Understanding how one’s own spiritual traditions influence health care decisions is essential. We will explore how faith and spirituality, in whatever form, can help family caregivers in their journey. Register for this virtual panel discussion.
