2016 Family Caregiver Lunch and Learn Series

The growing number of family caregivers in our community are looking for resources to help them care for their loved ones, such as understanding legal issues or identifying and accessing tools for safe care at home. A collaborative partnership between Thomas Nelson Community College, Peninsula Agency on Aging, Colonial Behavioral Health and local experts are offering a solution.

The "2016 Family Caregiver Lunch and Learn Series" will launch in February at the Thomas Nelson Workforce Center located at 4135 Ironbound Road. The series provides family caregivers with information to effectively care for their loved one at home. Professionals providing care and support for those at home or in long-term care facilities are also encouraged to attend. The monthly sessions run from 11:30A.M.-1 P.M. and are offered at no charge including lunch.

The first session will be held on Thursday, February 11 at 11:30 A.M. Susan Jean, Esq. from "The Heritage Law Group" will be presenting on "Legal Issues Facing Caregivers". Registration is required now.
Members of the planning committee are shown here from left to right: Marsha Obremski; Joyce Ugweje; Sherrie Thrift; Diane Hartley and Joan Bender. For more information to register or to sponsor a luncheon contact Sherri Thrift at 757-897-3462 or email Joyce Ugweje at ugwejej@tncc.edu.
