Caregiving Over the Holidays

Caregiving during the holidays can cause an already full schedule to overflow. To quote AARP, "For some family caregivers, the holidays can be a joyful time when spirits are lighter. It feels good to care for loved ones and enjoy time together, celebrating with family traditions. But for many the holidays also bring added stress – an already busy caregiver finds there’s even more to do during the holidays. Something’s gotta give!" Join us to share ideas and tips for navigating through the holiday season with more joy and less stress.
